"Are Pencil Flower Drawings
If you want to learn to draw flowers, here are some easy step-by-step techniques.
Pencil Flower Drawing - Step 1.
Usually the technique of drawing involves the use of finer lines. So, the ideal choice of paper is a smooth surface paper. You can start by doing a sketch drawing in outline form, first delineating the flower petals, and finally the leaves (if you want to), using a sharpened HB grade graphite pencil.
Pencil Flower Drawing - Step 2.
With a 2B grade pencil, indicate light tones, using lines on the leaves to rended shadow areas. With short, horizontal strokes. Add light tones to the left or right side (depends on where your light source is) of the flower as medium gray tones to the opposite side by using appropriate pressure. Draw around the flower petals and leaves, silhouetting them against the background.
Pencil Flower Drawing - Step 3.
Draw the background using random pencil strokes, apply with different pressure to create tonal variation. You can now carefully blend all tones using this technique, sometimes create the tones by rubbing with your finger. Blacks were added with a 4B grade pencil. Use random strokes on the dark side of the flowers, some of them drawn over one another in a crosshatch effect. Create the inner flower parts texture with inside out curved strokes.
Pencil Flower Drawing - Step 4.
For the darkest tones, use a 4B grade graphite pencil. Add black tones in the shadows from the leaves, and tone down white areas in the background by drawing over them. Use hatched tones to darken the leaves and deepen the shadows.
