Introduction: How to Draw a Rose

Picture of How to Draw a Rose

Have you ever wondered how to draw a rose? It sounds very hard, but with practice it will become very easy to you. It's great for cards, too.

Step 1: Begin With a Rosette

Draw a small spiral, but then make the line into a U. Use the picture to guide you.

Step 2: Add the Petals

Draw petals coming off of the rosette. It doesn't have to be perfect, that's what makes each rose unique.

Step 3: Stem and Leaves

Make a stem by drawing a line from the bottom of the rose. Draw leaves however you like, or omit them.

Step 4: Color and Decorate

Color as you wish and decorate if you want. Try making a bouquet, different colors, or anything else you can think of!

Can you adjust the brightness on these? Seems anatomically correct but a bit dark


Stylised rose only because it's a Yorkshire one.
