A bouquet of tulips is one of the traditional gifts for March 8. Let's learn how to draw these wonderful spring flowers.
A bouquet of painted tulips is a beautiful and wonderful gift, and at the same time more durable than fresh flowers!
Let's start by marking the “anchor” point on a piece of paper. It should be in the center of the page and at a distance of about 1/3 of the top edge of the sheet.
We outline the contour of the future flower. To do this, draw a pencil like this “plug”. Our reference point should be in the center of this fork, as shown in the figure.
Now outline the contours of the leaves. The leaves of the tulip are long and wide. The lines of the contours of the leaves should be drawn from the lower end of our “fork” and bend these lines in the upper part a little outward.
Now we begin to draw the tulip petals. Please note that the outer edge of the petal is more rounded than the outer line of the “plug”. Thus, our tulip will have a cup shape. The inner edge of the petal is a simple arc that goes to the center of the flower - the reference point.
In the same way we draw the second, symmetric, petal. Please note that the tulip will look more realistic if one petal slightly overlaps the edge of the other at the bottom.
And finally, in the center we draw another petal.
We pass to the stem and leaves. The stem of the tulip is thick - draw two lines on the sides of the reference line - the “handle” of our “fork”. Draw the outer edges of the leaves along the prepared contour, and the inner edges of the leaves going to the stem.
That's all. Our tulip is ready. Color it by connecting your imagination!
Tulips are amazing flowers, they have a wide variety of shapes. You can only slightly change the shape of the lines - and you get a completely different kind of tulip:
The cup of this tulip is wider than in the first picture. In addition, we added two more petals. They are located behind the central petal.
Having trained in drawing tulips, you can create whole ornaments from these flowers:
Or, as we said at the very beginning of the lesson, draw a beautiful bouquet as a gift for mom on March 8!
How to draw a tulip with colored pencils in stages
Draw the outline of the tulip with a hard pencil.
With a green pencil, shade the stem and leaves. Shade the bud with a pink pencil. At the same time, we make the upper part of the petals brighter, darkening more.
At this stage you can use a pink felt-tip pen or the same pencil. But in case you use a pencil, the pressure should be stronger. Lightly shade the bottom of the bud with a yellow pencil. With a green pencil, a tone darker than the previous one, shade the stem and leaves in those places where the least light falls.
With a simple pencil, draw the shadows on the bud. Strokes should be barely noticeable.
Stages of drawing a tulip:
We outline with a simple pencil the head of a tulip in the form of an uneven oval and a stem.
Next, go to the leaves. They will have a different look and location.
Correct the shape of each sheet. We make them more believable.
Around the first oval, draw on the sides of the other tulip petals.
Marker outlines each line of the picture.
We start to decorate the tulip bud with yellow and red pencils.
Leaves can also be made in non-uniform colors. For this purpose, take yellow, light green and emerald pencils.
The phased drawing of the tulip with colored pencils is completed.
How to draw a tulip easily
Let's draw a tulip. In general, the flower is narrow and long. Note that the leaves are adjacent to the stem.
We detail the bud, leaves and finish the flower stalk.
Draw the flower bud
At this point you need to colorize your flower.
How to draw a tulip bud
Draw a vertical oval in the middle of the sheet. This will be the basis for the tulip bud. Through it we draw the centerline, lowering it down (into the stem). The centerline will be slightly curved to the left.
Inside the oval, draw the tulip petals. In the middle there will be the largest petal, because it is in the foreground. As you move away, the petals will be smaller. Some petals, which are located on the sides, are slightly bent.
At the bottom of the bud add the stem. We will also place flower leaves along the sides. They will be long and wide from the bottom, and narrow to the top. The leaves will visually differ among themselves, which is natural for the plant.
We outline the contours of the flower with a black pen. We wipe the unnecessary lines that were necessary in the previous stages with an eraser.
Paint the edges of the petals and leaves with yellow. Add a little orange to the petals, next to yellow. We make the transitions as smooth as possible so that the flower looks more natural. We make strokes from the edge to the center.
Draw the middle of the petals in red. Enter the color smoothly, making strokes from the outer edge to the center to get the correct texture. In burgundy color, add a shadow on the flower petals.
The stem and leaves must be painted in light green and green. Leaves will be lighter towards the edge, and darker towards the middle. A little green will go to the base of the stem. With a black marker, we highlight the important contours in the figure, so that the picture becomes more expressive. Draw a little base of the petals on the bud with a black marker to make a shadow in this place.
Here we have such a bright and beautiful drawing. Now we know how to draw a tulip bud using colored pencils.
Draw a black tulip
Draw the general shape of the tulip bud. Its lower part will be much wider than the upper. Below we add a vertical line of the stem.
Draw the flower petals. All of them will fit snugly at the base, and to the top - (break up) have a small distance from each other. The middle of each petal has two vertical lines.
Below we place the leaves of the tulip. They have slightly wavy lines. There are three sheets in the figure. We do not draw the bottom of the stem and leaves.
Black pen highlight the contours of the flower pattern of a black tulip.
We remove the lines of a simple pencil with an eraser. Using lime color, draw the stem and leaves of the tulip. To show a shadow in this area, use a dark green color.
At the edges of the flower petals, add a purple hue.
Then draw the rest of the bud’s petals with a black pencil, making a smooth transition from purple.
It remains to circle the contours with a black marker and you're done! Now we know how to draw a black tulip.
Learning to draw a tulip with a pen
Draw an oval at an angle that will become the basis for the tulip bud. From the bottom of the oval we lead a wavy line to the right down. This line will become the basis for the tulip stem.
Draw the leaves in the bud. They will separate slightly from above, and fit snugly below. Draw a stem below. It will be wide above and narrower towards the bottom.
Add two leaves on the stem on both sides. A long large sheet will be located on the right, and a thinner and curved leaf on the left. Their base is almost at the same level, only the length of the right sheet will be longer than that of the left.
Draw with a simple pencil more precisely the bends and details of the flower. Add the bends at the base and edge of the tulip leaf. On the bud, we also draw vertical lines in the middle of each petal.
With a black pen we select all the contours of the flower, then we can remove the pencil sketch with an eraser.
Add shadows to the leaves and stem using lines and dots using a black pen. The darkest places will be near the bends and at the bases.
Gently, in the same way as in the previous step, draw the petals of the tulip bud. Only here it is important not to darken. This area is lighter than the bottom of the flower.
Add contrast to the picture. You can re-select the flower lines.
Now it’s clear how to draw a tulip with a pen.
