How to Draw a Beautiful Tulip
How to Draw a Tulip
Today, we will be drawing a lovely tulip in just seven steps! Be sure to have a blank sheet of paper, a sharpened pencil, and a nice eraser on hand. The sketch should take no longer than five minutes to finish, so feel free to proceed to the first step when you're ready!
1. Start With a Petal
The petals are shaped sort of like teardrops, so keep that in mind as you sketch them out. The first petal will be the last one on the right side of the tulip. We will draw the petal in the center last.
2. Add a Petal
Draw the left petal, and keep it a similar teardrop shape.
3. Fill It In
Sketch a tulip petal nestled in between the two you just drew. If you noticed in the first two steps, the petals are both separated by a bit of empty space. This is where the central petal will be.
4. Add More Petals
Draw the rest of the petals that are pushed farther in the back of the tulip. Only the tips will be exposed at the top.
5. Add the Stem
Now that the tulip bulb is completed, we will draw the stem. It has a simple shape which pretty much goes straight up and down. I decided to make the stem a little curvier to make it look like it's leaning slightly.
6. Add Vein-Like Details
Draw vein-like lines on each flower petal. This is known as the sepal.
7. Finalize the Details
Include more details on both the tulip petals and the stem. I drew in some shading lines to create a more realistic appearance.
And that's all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Feel free to leave any feedback down below!
