Learn how to make an easy rose drawing with a step-by-step tutorial. Flattening out the shapes makes it easier for young artists to draw.
When it comes to drawing flowers, there’s nothing that shares the sentiment of love as much as a rose does. They have come to symbolize love like no other.
The only catch to drawing roses, is that they are not nearly as simple as say, a daisy, which has all its petals spread out and is pretty easy to see. Roses, whether looking at them in profile, or top view, have lovely irregularly wrapped petals that are trickier to draw.
One solution is to draw a rose that is still in bloom, so it has just a few petals, and keep an easy side view. The layered shapes are much easier to see and draw, and young artists can spend more time adding detail to their leaves.
