Want to know how to draw a rose? Drawing roses is not as hard as you might think. You can start with a simple circle and fill it in with lines and petals, or you can start by drawing one large rose and adding more details to make it look realistic. Either way, the key to creating a realistic looking rose is in the details!
Draw a circle
To draw a circle, you’ll need to use a pencil or other marker. You can also use one of these tools:
- A compass (with its straight edge)
- A protractor (with its index)
A protractor is a simple device used in geometry to measure angles. It consists of two perpendicular arms that intersect at right angles and form 90 degrees. One arm has an index finger placed on the other end while another arm has an arrow pointing toward where the angle begins.
Put four lines coming out from the sides of the circle
Now, draw four lines coming out from the sides of the circle. The top line should be one inch long and go right down to where it meets our bottom line. The second line should also be one inch long and come up at an angle to meet with our first line. And so on for all four lines:
- The third (top) is 2 inches tall;
- The fourth (bottom) is 2 inches tall;
- Their second point is 1 inch from their first point; and
- Their next point is 3 inches from their previous two points..
Put another line extending from the center of each side and add a petal shape at the end of each line
The next step is to draw another line extending from the center of each side and add a petal shape at the end of each line. This will help you connect all your petals together in one go, so that you can fill in all their edges with black.
Next, put another line extending from the center of each side and add a petal shape at the end of each line. This will help you connect all your petals together in one go, so that you can fill in all their edges with black.
Now we need to add more rose stems inside and between every other rose stem (there is also one extra stem on top). Add these as well!
Add more petals inside of the first petals and between them
Now that you have your first rose, it’s time to add more petals inside of the first petals and between them. To do this, draw two lines on top of each other at an angle. These will be used to create stems for each rose (more info about how to make these later).
You now need to fill in some spaces between each stem so that when you add more roses later, they can fit in there without becoming too crowded together.
Fill in all the petals with black and add stems to every rose.
The next step is to add more petals inside of the first ones. This will give your drawing a more realistic look, as well as making it easier for you to fill in your artwork with color later on.
The key to drawing realistic roses is having a solid base for your petals. If you’re just starting out with drawing, I highly recommend that you start by sketching out all of the flowers first.
Draw roses by starting with a circle and adding petals inside, working outward.
- Draw a circle
- Add four lines coming out from the sides of the circle, making sure to connect them to each other at their points with lines that curve inward (as shown below). This is where we will add petals in later steps!
- Draw another line extending from the center of each side and add another petal shape at the end of each line (as shown below). This was our first flower—you could draw more than one if you want! Just remember: don’t Squish Your Flower or You’ll Have Nothing Left To Look At.
What to consider before drawing a rose flower?
There are a few things to consider before drawing a rose flower. First, think about the color of the rose. Second, consider the size and shape of the rose. Third, decide if you want to add any other details, such as thorns or leaves. fourth, think about the overall composition of the drawing.
When thinking about the color of the rose, you have a few options. You could go with a traditional red rose, or you could choose a different color, like white or pink. You could also mix and match colors, like a pink and white rose, or a red and white rose.
When considering the size and shape of the rose, you need to think about how it will fit on the paper. A rose can be drawn small, medium, or large. It can also be drawn in different shapes, like a perfect circle, an oval, or a more abstract shape.
That’s all there is to it! You now know how to draw a rose. You can go ahead and practice this method on some scrap paper or in your sketchbook. It’s also a good idea to keep practicing until you really get the hang of drawing these beautiful flowers with ease, which will take time but is definitely worth it.
