Many of us really want to learn how to draw flowers, especially roses and lilies. Do you have growing piles of drawing paper with flower scribbles?
How about using a chalk and blackboard for practicing and creating flower wall murals at the same time? Here is a good example to follow from Instagram star Casey Ligon. No more wasting paper! Drawing flowers will be more fun than ever!
Step-by-step drawing Instructions:
- Give a bit of rough texture to your chalkboard by adding a quick and messy background with a layer of chalk – it will create a lively atmospheric effect replacing a cold and sterile surface.
- Sketch out with thin lines the main flower as an anchor and then continue with doing the same for a smaller flower.
- Using heavy pressure, trace back over the outlines of the flowers. After that, using the tips of your fingers, pull down the extra chalk residue to create streaks that mimic the organic texture of flower petals.
- Forcefully stipple the tip of your chalk onto your surface to form the centers. Pull down the chalk residue with your fingers to create tiny lines.
- Draw branches and leaves around your flowers. Use the pull-down technique to add detail to each leaf.
- Outline each petal and leaf to pronounce the shape, and clean up edges with a damp cloth as necessary.
- To make your masterpiece even more lively, add some dots or stars around.
