How to Draw a Lotus Flower

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Attach the lotus petals to the center. To do so, use two curves, allowing them to meet at a sharp point at the top. The bottom should be flat or round like a teardrop.

Step 2

Draw a second petal extending from one side of the first petal. Again, use two curves, which meet at a sharp point at the top.

Step 3

Draw a third petal by stretching the two curves from the first, so that the lines meet at a sharp point.

Step 4

Draw more petals on the back of the flower, visible between the previous petals. Again, using two lines for each line, allows them to meet points.

Step 5

Draw the petals below the flower. To do so, stretch three sets of curves outward from the bottom of the flower. Allows the lines to meet at points.

Step 6

Draw more petals between the petals on the existing one, using two curves for each one.

Step 7

Draw more lower petals that emerge from the back of the flower. Then, detail some of the petals detail by drawing lines of different lengths from their base. This gives the flower more depth.

Step 8

Draw anther, or pollen structures, inside the flower. For each anther, extend two short, parallel lines from the center of the flower. Surround the lines by drawing a circle at the top.

Step 9

Draw the flower’s environment. Draw a slightly curved horizon that passes behind the flower. Draw a lily pad below it by enclosing an irregular circle. Draw a few more pieces of the lily, each of which is an irregular circle like a cake with a slice from there. Detail the lily pads using curves and short. Then, draw wavy, horizontal lines of different lengths around the lily to represent the ripples in the water.

Step 10

Color your lotus. In nature, the lotus can be white, red, pink, purple, yellow, or a combination of these colors.
