Today i’m going to show you how to draw a rose. Seems easy right? Well, it is! (the hardest part is the leaves, and that just takes a little practice.)
You will need a pencil, an eraser and a piece of paper.
Let’s get started!
Draw a slightly wavy line that grows a bit thinner towards the top.
Petiole – The tiny stem holding all the leaflets.
Petiolul – a subdivision of the petiole that connects a leaflet to the petiole.
Rose leaves are ovate. This means they look sort of like large, round eyes.
Here are some pictures of rose leaves that might be helpful to use as a reference.
Now we will start drawing the bud of our rose.
Make a “U” shape at the top of your stem to create the lower portion of the rose bud.
Erase any over lapping lines on the leaflets.
A long time ago, I taught myself this trick for drawing the inside of a rose:
Draw a spiral at the end of your “U” shape to create the look of swirling petals.
Now you’re done! Look at your lovely rose!
