How to Draw a Flower

1. Start with a basic flower shape. You can use a reference photo or sketch to help you get the proportions right. Use a light color for the first layer so you can easily make corrections.

2. Once you’re happy with the basic shape, start adding in layers of color. Work from light to dark, or mix colors together to create new shades.

3. To add depth and dimension to your painting, try using different brushstrokes. For example, you can use long strokes for the petals and short strokes for the center of the flower.

I hope these three easy tips will help you get started on your painting. Now, let’s get to the 14 painting ideas to inspire you.
