I will be showing you how to draw a flower and color your picture with pastel chalk. You will need the following materials drawing paper, pastel chalks, pencils, erasers, and a flower photograph.
Step 1: Step 2
I will begin by drawing the rose by creating simple spirals that are interconnected. The spirals should vary in length. This will establish the feel of realism
Step 2: Step 3
I will draw the rest of the lines and organic shapes that surround the spirals. This will unify all the new shapes with the previous shapes.
Step 3: Step 4
After I have determined the placement of all the spirals and the organic shapes that surround the spirals. I will begin to establish my light and shadow. I will begin by drawing in the shadows as shapes. This will give my drawing the feel of depth perception.
Step 4: Step 5
After the flower is fully drawn and the light and shadows are established I will begin to color the flower with the pastel chalk. For those of you who have not colored with pastels hold it with you finger tips.
Step 5: Step 6
Make sure you smudge the pastel with your fingers. USE YOUR FINGERS DON'T BE SCARED!
Step 6: Step 7
If you smudge your lines and blend with your finger tip your picture should look similar to this.
Step 7: Step 8
You can use hair spray to hold the chalk in place after you are finished with the picture.
Step 8: Step 8
This is the finished picture. Good luck and enjoy!
