How To Draw A Lotus Flower Step By Step
Let’s begin the lotus flower drawing tutorial.
Step 1: The first step to draw lotus flowers is to begin with a teardrop, as shown in the picture. This will be the bud of your lotus flower.
Step 2: Draw the petals of lotus on the right side of the bud. For petals, draw a freehand teardrop egg and keep it slightly pointed at the top. Make sure you draw only half of the teardrop enclosing with the bud.
Step 3: Repeat drawing a similar petal on the left side. Each petal can be marginally different from the other.
Step 4: Now draw an additional layer of the petal to give the lotus drawing a fuller look.
Step 5: Draw another petal on the left side.
Step 6: In this step, we teach you how to draw lotus leaf. Draw the leaves on the bottom of the bud. As shown in the picture, keep the leaf smaller in size from the petals but the shape of leaves remains the same.
Step 7: Draw two more leaves on either side of the first leaf. Start the leaves from the corner of the first leaf and extend to the petals.
Step 8: To finish the lotus drawing, add a stem to the flower. Begin drawing the stem from the bottom of the leaves, as illustrated in the picture.
Step 9: Bring your lotus flower to life by coloring it in beautiful floral shades.
