Rose Sketch - Step No. 4
Take a HB or B grade graphite pencil. Use it to draw sketches. Start by drawing pencil sketches of the outer line of only one rose petal from the center to the outer part of it using the HB or B grade graphite pencil.
Here's the magic part... Look at your still life subject and
start from the center. Draw a part of a petal without looking at the

Ask these 2 important questions:-
1. Does it has a correct size
be on your paper?

You can start your rose sketch with any of the two pencils. I suggest you use a 2B pencil first to create fine stroke from the center to the outer part of your drawing pencil sketches. Follow the contour curves of the surface to produce a depth effect.
Then, use a 4B pencil for darker tones especially the 'deeper' part (in a 3D perspective) of your subject.
