You don’t need any fancy drawing supplies. Just grab an ordinary pencil, eraser and black marker – you’re good to go.

Before we begin, here’s a great tip you should try:

Sketch a rough copy of your flower before inking it. This way, you’ll be able to improve on the design or erase the mistakes you make.

How To Draw Flowers In A Pot

Step 1: Draw the flower pot

Start off by drawing a flower pot shape. This doesn’t need to be perfect at all, you can just fill in or darken certain spots if you feel like it’s too crooked. Draw a curved long rectangle, then draw two lines in an angle and close it off with a straight line joining the two angled lines.

Step 2: Draw the petals

The next step is to draw the petals for your flower. Begin by drawing a circle half up from the flower pot. Then add petals to the circle to form the flower.

Step 3: Complete the petals

Once you’ve completed drawing the petals, your flower will now look like this.

Step 4: Attach the stem

Next up, the flower will need a stem! Draw two straight lines running down to join the flower to the pot. You don’t need to draw a straight stem, choose any style you want. This could be a curved stem running from the right or the left. Totally up to you!

Step 5. Add the leaves

Now you’ll need to add leaves. You can do this by drawing a small curved line on the right side and draw a petal shape around that line. On the other side of the flower, draw another small line and repeat as you did with the other leaf.

Step 6: Draw smaller ovals in the flower petals

To give the flower more detail, you can add these smaller petals in the middle of the flower petals. Simply draw a sort of stretched oval shape (or a smaller petal shape) using the middle circle as a guide. Continue doing that for each petal until you have another smaller flower design.

Step 7: Add lines to the smaller petals

What I usually like to do next is sort of shade the petals in. You can do this by coloring the entire petal or draw a few lines in the petals to give it more definition so that the flower drawing stands out.

Step 8: Draw more petals

A simple and easy way to make your flower drawing look extra special is by adding more petals! When you do this it makes the flower look bigger and better. Simple draw half circles by joining one petal to the next. Keep going around the flower until you notice all the petals have been joined by the half circles.

Step 9: Add smaller flowers to the pot

Don’t leave your flower all alone. Draw a few tiny flowers to give it some company! All you need to do is draw a few rough flower shapes a little further from the pot and join them with a curved line to the flower pot.

Step 10: Flower pot and leaf detail

This step is completely optional but if you want to give a bit more detail to the flower pot, just draw a few of these shapes in the pot. Also, you can add three V shapes to each of the leaves to make it look like stems.

Step 11: Draw the floor

To add the floor or surface area, draw two lines around the pot. Then you can sketch a few more lines in angle for some extra shading which will give the pot a shadow.

Step 12: Further details (optional)

Since I wanted to match the inner petals with the outer, I added a few more half circles and used the exact same pattern as the smaller petals in the middle to complete the flower drawing. You can choose to do the same or leave it plain like the last step. Either way, they both look great!

Simple Guidance

If you don't know where to start, sometimes it helps to block in the outline first.

I use the blocking method when there are too many flowers and leaves for me to sketch without assistance, and it really saves me from getting confused! However, these were really easy flowers to draw and I simply used light guidelines to construct the drawing.

There is a fantastic e-book called Drawing Outlines that is available now (for a very low price) and it sets you up perfectly for any drawing project.

Depending on the complexity of your chosen flower, you might like to practice drawing the flower on its own prior to completing a more finished piece including stem and leaves.

If copying from a real flower, remove a petal and draw it separately.

Next, observe how the flower joins with the stem and the way the bud opens to reveal the flower. Draw this small portion and discover that you become more inspired by these kinds of interesting little study sessions.

That's why I like doing small pieces like this one on the right …

For pencils, I mainly used a 2B mechanical pencil, they are particularly great creating for fine strokes.

My favorite drawing erasers are white plastic and kneaded.

These easy flowers to draw were created on plain old photocopy paper because I like the durable, smooth surface.

I make my own sketchbooks with photocopy paper -- -- instructions are included as a bonus when you purchase the How To Sketch Guide.
