How to Draw a Classic Rose

Artist: Dawn / January 10, 2016

Step 1.

Make a simple circle and then draw a guide inside the shape.

Step 2.

We will draw the print like shape first and then the line that slopes down the side.

Step 3.

Add the edge of the rose petal and then draw the bulb like shape to make a bud.

Step 4.

We will now draw the edges of the other two petals like so.

Step 5.

We will finish the rose by drawing the remaining petals which will form the classic rose look. Add the dimpling to the middle of the petals and you are done here.

Step 6.

Finally, draw in the leaves and make sure the leaves have serrated edges. Detail the centers and you can erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 7.

Here is your line art. You can use any shade to color in the rose before showing off your work.

Description: Okay guys, I have another flower lesson for you and like almost always it is on a rose. So, up next we will be learning how to draw a classic rose, step by step. The coloring for this rose is done to celebrate Day of the Dead even if it is not until next year. Classic roses are just a simple rose with the classic look. Of course you don't have to color in your rose using the shades I did here, you can always use your typical red color if you want to keep it really classic. Anyways enjoy and when it comes to drawing roses do it simply.
