How To Draw A Rose

Paper: Make sure you have a fresh, clean sheet of paper to work on.

Pencil: The most commonly used drawing tool, perfect for sketching and shading.

Eraser: Keep an eraser nearby to easily correct mistakes and remove smudges.

Optional: Colored pencils or markers can be used if you wish to incorporate color into your drawing.

To create a rose drawing, you will require the following materials

Patience and practice: Drawing a rose demands time and practice, so remain patient and continue practicing until you achieve the desired outcome.

Outline the Rose Base

Step 1:

Start by drawing the base of the rose, which typically has a U shape and a mouthpiece. The base is formed by the tightly-packed petals around the center of the bud. Draw a U shape in the middle of the page to outline the outer petal.


Draw the Upper Part of the Base

Step 2:

In this step, draw the upper portion of the rose's base. From a different perspective, you can see the complete outer petal. As mentioned earlier, shaped rosebuds have mouth-like structures on either side to form the shape of the upcoming petals. Draw two curved lines on the main base of the bud to create this section.


Create the First Petal

Step 3:

In this step, you will draw the first petal of the rose bud. Starting from the top left of the base, draw a sloping curve that goes towards the bottom right to form the shape of the first petal.


Draw Another Petal on the Opposite Side

Step 4:

In this step, you will draw another petal on the opposite side of the first one. The shape of outer rose petals can vary depending on the specific rose type, but they typically have an oval or teardrop shape with a slightly pointed tip. The base of the petal is wider and tapers towards the tip. Include a small leaf-like shape at the bottom of the first petal to create a sepal. Mirror the first petal by drawing another petal on the opposite side.


Create the Inner Petals

Step 5:

In this step, create a sharp curve towards the tip in the middle of the two previously drawn petals. This forms a part of the petal inside the rosebud. Once you have completed this step, proceed to the next step of our rose drawing tutorial.


Add Petals Around the Center

Step 6:

In this step, draw a series of curved lines around the center of the rose to form layers of petals encircling the bud. The edges of the petals can be smooth or slightly ruffled, and their surface may have a smooth or slightly textured appearance. The size and curvature of the petals can differ based on the flower's growth stage and the viewing angle.


Draw Sepal and Pedicel

Step 7:

Draw a long, thin stem for the pedicel, making it slightly curved and tapered at the bottom. At the top of the stem, create a small, pointed shape for the sepal. The sepal is the green protective structure that covers the base of the flower. Mirror the first sepal by drawing a second one on the opposite side of the stem. Enhance the sepals by adding detail, such as small veins or lines running through them.


Color the Rose

Step 8:

In the final step of our rose drawing guide, it's time to add color. Roses can be found in various colors, so decide which colors you want to use for your drawing. Common rose colors include red, pink, white, yellow, and peach. Start by coloring the petals of the rose with a light shade of red.


Once you have the base color, add shading to the petals to give them depth and dimension. Use a slightly darker shade of the same color or a complementary color to shade the areas of the petals in shadow or under folds. Color the center of the rose with a darker red. For the sepals, use a light green shade, and for the stem, use a darker green. Remember, coloring a rose is a creative process, so feel free to experiment with different color combinations and shading techniques to create a unique and beautiful rose drawing!
