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

Step 1

To start this Venus flytrap tutorial, we’re not going to draw the tree itself, but the pot it’s in.

This pot will have a rather short, round base shown in the reference image we have provided.

Then we will add a thick border to the pot, and this can also be drawn with some circles with straight edges on the sides.

The vertices of the far edges will curve inward slightly, but be sure to keep these short as we’ll be adding a Venus flytrap to that blank soon.

Once you’ve completed this step, we can move on to the second part of the tutorial.

Step 2 – Now draw the first realistic plants of the Venus flytrap

Now that you have a pot for your Venus flytrap drawing, you can start drawing the Venus flytrap itself.

Each stem of the plant will be quite long and thick, and they will be drawn with some curved and wavy lines.

Then we will draw the ‘head’ of the venus flytrap. The base of each end will be drawn with a rounded and curved line, and the top will be drawn with lots of sharp and spiked lines.

Draw two of these trees, one on each side, and then we can move on to the third step of the tutorial.

Step 3 – Next, draw some more plants in the pot

For this third step of the Venus flytrap tutorial, we’re adding two more plants to the collection.

Each of these will go through the previous two that you drew.

They will also have a very similar structure to those, and the only difference is that they will have longer stalks as they get taller. The stem on the right will also be slightly thicker.

Step 4 – Draw some more trees

Continuing with this Venus flytrap drawing, we’ll add two more stalks. However, these will follow a different trend.

The previous four are a bit saggy, but the next two should stand up straighter. Apart from that change, they will be more or less the same again.

However, the one on the right will open and the reference image will show you how to structure it so it looks different from the closed ones.

Once these two have been drawn, we’ll be ready to move on to some final details in the next section.

Step 5 – Add the final plants to your Venus flytrap drawing

This fifth step of our Venus flytrap tutorial will help you add the final plants to the image. Again, we will add two more trees in this step.

The one on the right will also be vertical and closed, but the one on the left will be slightly different.

This will open wide and the inside of the ‘mouth’ will be facing us. We’ll be more specific about this opening when we start adding color later.

You can also add some details of your own to really complete it! One idea is to draw some unfortunate bugs buzzing toward the macaws of the Venus flytrap.

This is just an idea, but what else can you think of to add to this drawing?

Step 6 – Complete your Venus flytrap drawing with color

You’re almost done with your Venus flytrap drawing, and now you can finish with some awesome colors! In our reference image, we showed you how we would color this image.

We used some brown for the pot, and by using some darker shades on the sides you can add some shading.

Then we used various greens for the stem and top of the plant, and then we finished with some pink with dark pink dots for the inside of the mouth.

These are the colors we’ve chosen, but you shouldn’t feel limited by these choices.

Here’s your chance to show off the colors that you think would look great for this image and we can’t wait to see what you choose!

Your Venus Flytrap drawing is done!

All 6 steps of this Venus flytrap tutorial are complete, and you’ve got a wonderful drawing of this weird and wonderful plant!

This tutorial is designed to break down all the elements of this tree into smaller chunks and hopefully this makes it easier and more fun!
