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

Step 1

Start by making two sets of circles with a more egg-like outer shape and a yolk-like inner shape. Next, draw the whole body line.

Step 2

Now starting from the inner circle for a guide you will start drawing some lily petals. It’s best to start at the bottom and work your way up. There are seven petals to paint in this step, so take your time to get the perfect result.

Step 3

Now that you’ve drawn some conical petals for your lily, you can now draw three larger shaped petals that will act as a resting bed for the smaller petals. Once this is done, you are ready to move on to step four.

Step 4

The lily petals that will be drawn from both sides should be arched to them as these are the petals that begin to form a rounded shape for the lily. There are three conical petals on each side that you need to draw in and try to keep them close together.

Step 5

Continue drawing the lily petals but this time draw them in the same pointy position. The petals at the top of the flower grow straighter and stiffer, then the bottom, and the outer petals.

Step 6

Continue drawing such petals, and when you’re done, you’ll have a crown formed at the top of such a lily.

Step 7

Now you are ready to draw in the center of the lily filled with hair like pistil. Take your time with this step for the center to come out nicely.

Step 8

Now you are ready to finish the flower by drawing in the thick stem. The stem of the lily is very strong, so be sure to paint it the way you see it here. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 9

Here’s what your flowers will look like when you’re done. Now you can have even more fun coloring your newly drawn lily. I hope you guys had fun as I taught you how to draw a water lily.
