How to draw a beautiful tulip
I'm happy to announce that I have written yet another tutorial hub on drawing flowers. My last hub had to do with sunflowers. It was a bit of a challenge so I decided to write something a little easier this time.
Today, we will be drawing a tulip. There are 7 steps in total, all broken down as simply as possible. Be sure you have a blank sheet of paper as well as a sharpened pencil. A nice eraser doesn't hurt either! The drawing should take no longer than 5 minutes to finish. Proceed to the first step when you're ready! :)
Draw the petals first. The petals are shaped sort of like tear drops if you may. This first petal will represent the last one to the right. We will draw the petal in the center last.
Draw the left petal in this next step. Still somewhat of a teardrop shape like in the previous step.
Now, draw a tulip petal that is nestled in between the two side ones that we have already drawn. If you notice in the first two steps, the petals are both separated from one another, with a bit of empty space between the two. This is where the central petal will be.
Next, draw the rest of the petals that are pushed farther in the back of the tulip. Only the tips of the petals will be exposed at the top.
Now that our tulip bulb is completed, we will draw the stem now. The step has a simple shape, pretty much straight up and down. I decided to make the stem a little more curvy.
Going back to the tulip petals, I have drawn vein-like lines on each of them. These are known as the sepal.
In the final step, we will include some detail on both the tulip petals and the stem. I have drawn in some shading lines on both parts in order to create a more realistic appearance in the drawing.
And that's all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Feel free to leave any feedback down below. :)
