Step 1.

Drawing tulips is going to be so fun. Start by drawing two egg shapes for the base shape of the flower. You will then draw the guidelines for the tulip stems, and the leaves.

Step 2.

You will now start sketching out the actual shape of the tulip flower. There is a total of six pedals on these blooms, and when they are grown right, you will only see the cupped display of the tulip.

You can now start sketching out the shape of the tulips stem, and the long leafy leaves to the flower. Once this is done you can move to the next step.

For your last drawing step, all you have to do is draw out the other stem, and then the leaves. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your nice drawing of tulips.

Step 5.

Here is what your neatly drawn tulips should look like when you are done. Color them in and you have just learned "how to draw tulips, step by step"
