Easy Flowers To Draw

I am continuously on the lookout for easy flowers to draw which I love adding to my sketchbook.

Simple outlines like this are terrific for a few reasons:

  • copying purposes (practice)
  • stimulating your creativity
  • elaboration to create an original piece
  • groundwork for using color

Lightly sketch the flower first before you start putting pressure on your pencil. In most cases, you won't need to erase your light guidelines because you can draw right over the top of them.

Another thing to keep in mind when drawing flowers, is to compare the size of a leaf to the size of the blossom. Do this mental measurement and you automatically keep them in proportion to each other when you sketch.

Simple Guidance

If you don't know where to start, sometimes it helps to block in the outline first.

I use the blocking method when there are too many flowers and leaves for me to sketch without assistance, and it really saves me from getting confused! However, these were really easy flowers to draw and I simply used light guidelines to construct the drawing.

Tulips in pencil

There is a fantastic e-book available now that describes how to achieve great drawing outlines. Have a look at that book, it is unbelievable value for $1 and it's very easy to follow.

Depending on the complexity of your chosen flower, you might like to practice drawing the flower on its own prior to completing a more finished piece including stem and leaves.

If copying from a real flower, remove a petal and draw it separately.

Next, observe how the flower joins with the stem and the way the bud opens to reveal the flower. Draw this small portion and discover that you become more inspired by these kinds of interesting little study sessions.

Flower Portion

That's why I like doing small pieces like this one …

For pencils, I mainly used a 2B mechanical pencil, they are particularly great creating for fine strokes.

My favorite drawing erasers are white plastic and kneaded.

These easy flowers to draw were created on plain old photocopy paper because I like the smooth surface.

I make my own sketchbooks with photocopy paper -- -- instructions are included as a bonus when you purchase the How To Sketch Guide.

You also receive a cute step by step drawing book, a list of my favorite drawing tips plus numerous illustrations for copy and study purposes.

This is a rough sketch that was created on the spur of the moment. I left all of my guidelines in because I like seeing the workings of the piece.

It doesn't matter if your drawings don't appeal to everyone, that is quite normal and natural. Differences make the world a more interesting place.

I found these easy flowers to draw in some great free ebooks (links to a different website and opens new page) which are filled to the brim with wonderful outline drawings.

Some of my drawings here were copied from one of those online books.

Easy Flower Drawing

Anyway, there's no point in reading about drawing if you don't have your pencil at the ready.

Creating basic illustrations like this boost your confidence and soon you will want to move on to more complex art studies to further your skills.

I wish you all the very best with this exciting hobby!
