Rose Petals are Arranged Like a Spiral
If you look at rose petals, you’ll notice that the petals are arranged like a spiral. They look so elegant because of their smooth, curved edges.
You’ll also notice that the large petals are the outermost petals, while the small petals are located towards the center of the flower.

Start with Just a Few Petals
When you first start drawing your rose, start with three or four petals going in a circular shape. At this point, you can add more petals to the outer or inner part of the flower. Do this until you’ve completed the outer ring of the flower.
As you work your way in, the petals should get smaller and smaller. Keep adding petals inside and outside of the rose to give it more volume.
