How to Draw a Calla Lily

Add To Favorites


First step to drawing a calla lily is making a circle for the top part of the flower. This will be your drawing guide. Next, draw in the long stem on an angle.


You will now begin sketching out the bell shaped bloom like so, and be sure to add that wispy tail at the tip of the lily.


Draw the other part of the calla lily which is just a rounded line to finish off the bloom. Add the stamen in the center and move along to step four.


You are almost done guys just a couple more steps to go. As you can see you will draw the thick hearty stem of the flower, and then incorporate two curled over leaves.


You can choose to draw the vase you see here, or you can create your personal favorite. Whatever type of vase you choose, draw it in now like so. Clean up the mistakes and guides to finish your drawing.


When you are done and you feel like your calla lily is complete, you should have a drawing like the one you see here. Color it in and that's it!

Description: After doing that lesson on the lily for kids, I wanted to make a more life like version of the calla lily since it is one of my favorite flowers. Anyways, the lily is in an actual vase, and I noticed once the drawing and coloring was done, that the surface the vase is resting on is cushioned or blanket like. I was like “omg how dense am I”? As you all know a vase cannot sit on a blanket or cushion steadily without falling over. The vase is a round design, although I did want to draw a tall, boxy shaped vase but for some odd reason I wasn't thinking clearly and this is what I produced instead. Calla lilies are known for their beautiful for their sleek, slender design as well as their simplicity. If I had my own way, I would have these flowers all over my house. I also love the bamboo shoots too, but they are sort of expensive for my taste, and they are really just green stalks wedged in a solid foundation. Anyways, this should be a fun lesson to tackle. I mean after all, you are drawing a lily , and as you know lilies are always fun to recreate especially calla lilies. Well I guess that's about it. I will leave you now so you can get to work on another drawing. I shall return because I still have at least one more lesson coming your way. I hope you enjoy this submission as much as I did drawing it.
