How To Draw a Tulip Flower Step by Step

Step 1:

For this first step, we will draw the blossom of the tulip flower. For this, you will sketch a shape that will look similar to the letter “U”.

The word tulip is derived from a Persian word called delband, which means turban as it was fashionable to wear tulips on turbans at the time.

Step 2:

Begin from the top side of the U shape you just drew and draw a curved line. It will end at the bottom inner surface of the tulip. Can you guess what you just drew? Yes, it was one of the petals.

Step 3:

Similarly, as you did in the previous step, you will sketch another curved line commencing from the top of the other side and you will stretch it down and it on either the bottom of the U shape or on the curved line you drew earlier.

It is as easy as Childs play, isn’t it?

Step 4:

You will now draw the last part of the tulip blossom.

Start from one of the petals and draw a straight line. Make it pointed and slide it down to the other side so it touches the other petal.

You can take reference from the illustration below to get a comprehensive idea of the shape of the final component of the blossom.

Tulips are also significant in the way that they are said to mark the arrival of spring.

Step 5:

Now sketch two straight lines from the base of the petals and then just extend the line. You will draw two parallel lines with little distance between them. This represents the stem.

This is one of the most effortless steps out of all the others.

Do you know that tulip petals are edible and can be used in may recipes?

Step 6:

Can you predict what is left uncompleted in the drawing?

In order to finish up your portrait, you will one leaf on each side.

You can represent the leaves by an elongated almond shape or you can just draw it the way you normally sketch it.

Step 7:

This is the most crucial part of the entire instructional exercise. Can you guess what it is? Yes, you are right! It is coloring!

As stated before, coloring is one of the most essential and exciting components of art.
