How To Draw A Rose with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy drawing tutorial for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing an irregular shape consisting of curved lines in the upper left part of your paper.
This forms the leftmost and largest visible petal of the rose.
Now, we will simply repeat what we did in the previous step. This time, create a smaller petal shape behind the first petal we drew earlier.
Don’t worry if the petals don’t look the same! The petals are not necessarily uniform. In fact, the more irregular the petals, the more realistic it looks!
Next, Draw the petals in the back part
This time, we will draw the part of the inner petal.
Draw curved shapes to represent this, as shown in the illustration.
Now, Draw the Middle of the Rose
This step is like a combination of the previous steps because we will be drawing parts of the inner and outer petals.
Draw curved lines to complete the inner petal and part of the outer petal.
Then add more petals on the right side
This time, we will finish the part of the large outer petal.
Draw curved lines to represent this, like the one shown in the illustration.
More rose petals on the back
To complete the “wrap around” look of the petals, we will draw another petal. But since this petal is located at the back, only the top part of it can be seen.
To create this petal, simply draw a curved line that forms the top edges of the petal.
Complete all the rose petals
Create the final petal by drawing another curved shape on the far right side of the rose.
Since this petal is located on the outer part of the rose, it must be bent and curved more than the other petals.
Then draw the stem of the rose
Now, we can see that the roses are slowly coming together!
In this step we will add the stem of the rose. Simply draw two parallel curved lines just below the rose.
Now let’s draw a leaf on the right side
In this step we will add a leaf on the right side of the rose branch.
Create the leaf by drawing an irregular shape with a rounded edge on the left side and a pointed end on the opposite side. This forms the shape of a single leaf.
Then draw a slight curve along the length of the leaf. This creates the midline of the pattern on the leaves.
Then draw multiple diagonal lines connecting to the midline to complete the individual textures inside the leaf.
You’ve got it — you’ve successfully drawn a rose! Now it’s finally time to add some color to your beautiful rose!
As you can see in the illustration above, we used red for the petals and green for the stem and leaves — a classic color combination for roses!
Roses come in a variety of colors, including red, pink, white, purple, yellow, orange and many more! You can choose to color the rose with its original colors or use a completely different color. Either way, we’re sure the colors will turn out gorgeous!
