This is an easy tutorial on How To Draw Flowers in six simple steps.

Flowers look quite complex to draw with overlapping petals but they all have simple basic shapes. Almost all flowers can be drawn using an outline to define their shape.

There are no sharp angles or straight lines
You will notice in all flowers and plants there are no sharp angles or acute shapes like a triangle or a square—but these shapes can be used mainly as a guideline when drawing flowers. When you draw flowers you will also have to note how their leaves are formed although it is not entirely necessary to have leaves as a support for the flower.

Their shapes are basincall oval
Looking at most flowers from above, you will notice they mostly have a round shape but if you look at them from an angle you will see they are oval in shape. Look at these examples here.

All petals stem from a central point in a flower—they grow outwards from this central point.

To start, get yourself a #2 or #3 pencil and an eraser. Keep your pencil sharp all the time as this gives you crisp lines and a clean drawing. Sketch the guidelines lightly at first. When you sketch in the basic shapes like an oval or square you will need to erase these guidelines later.
