How to Draw a Dogwood Flower

Updated on December 11, 2017

This is one of the easiest flowers to draw. Simply start with an X.

From the edge of one line, start rounding out the top of the petal. You will want to make the round edge drop in the middle. It will look almost like a heart.

After you draw in the four petals, shade in the very center where you dropped the line (dogwood flowers have a naturally darkened part of the petal). Then you can draw in the little circles in the center of the flower. And then the leaves and stem.

The stem is easy to draw — it just consists of two close lines. The leaves are simple as well — just note the basic shape. In drawing, nothing has to be perfect. In fact, it is small imperfections that will make your artwork unique. Next, you will want to shade in the flower. I like to concentrate on the area between the petals and the very center.

        Thank you very much leroy64, but I have to say it was your inspirational hub about photos that started me down the road which lead to this hub! :)

        Thank you! I found that the x helps a lot when drawing something with equal sides (as I am really bad about getting things even). Thanks for reading! :)

        You make it look so simple. I wish all drawings could be broken down to similar steps.
