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.

Or turning this into a card and writing a really lovely message inside.

Materials for a Rose Drawing

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
