"Are Rose Pencil Drawings
YOUR Favorite?"

Home ยป Rose Pencil Drawings

If pencil art roses or rose sketches are your favorite, then I'll show you with some ideas some examples of pencil drawings of roses starting from few rose sketches that I've drawn.

Drawing a rose flower is so exciting when you are sitting under a shady tree in a middle of a garden full of scented roses. The scenery is so important in developing your mood to start draw a rose or a bunch of roses.

But for beginners, before you start your rose flower drawing, make sure you take some photos or buy few pictures of roses...


You must learn to draw roses from a 2D photo first before you can draw a real rose flower in a 3D perspective. Make sure you practice to draw based on 2D pics or photos. As practice makes perfect...

Once you get the idea to draw a rose based on a 2D perspective, then it's a lot easier to draw a 3D rose or a realistic drawing of a rose.

So, what you need to do your rose pencil drawing is:

  • a nice place to sit...because it might take you long hours before you finish your drawing.
  • a good art drawing pencil set consists of different grade of graphite pencils (B, 2B and 4B). Faber Castell, Mont Blanc, Bic or Steadtler are among the best art pencil brands.
  • Another thing you need is a pencil eraser and a pencil sharpener.
  • a light, smooth surface paper holder (preferably with a clip), and
  • of course, a piece of A4 paper (preferably a 80gm photocopy paper).
  • You can purchase your art drawing pencil set at your local art suppliers. Subscribe to my newsletter or to The Drawing Blog so you'll be updated with my newest findings and recommendation for you to have the best value-for-money art drawing pencil set...

    If you already have all that is required, than you can start your rose pencil drawings.

    Rose Pencil Drawings - How To Draw A Rose, Step No. 1

    For beginners, I would suggest you to have a still 2D picture of rose..

    Take a piece of paper (preferably a cheap A4 photocopy paper) and a drawing pencil set. (Do you know what is a drawing pencil set? Click here)

    Select a nice place to sit. Make a cup of coffee or hot chocolate if you want.

    Ready? Go to the next step...

    Rose Pencil Drawings - Sketch 1

    Take a HB or B grade graphite pencil. Use it to draw sketches of your rose pencil drawing. Start by sketching the whole of the rose first. Either you start from the center of your rose drawing or from the outer petals's entirely up to you. As long as your rose sketch is on your paper, it's alright.

    Look at your still rose picture and after you've drawn all the petals, then, stop looking at your sketch and compare it with your subject.

    Ask these 2 important questions:-

    1. Does it has a correct size to be on your paper?

    2. Does it has a correct angle according to your rose picture?

    If the answer is NOT to any of these questions...Erase your rose pencil sketch, and re-sketch your rose drawing according to the correct size and angle.

    Okay? Finish drawing your rose pencil sketch? Let's continue to the next step...

    Rose pencil drawings - Sketch 3

    Create darker tones using 4B pencil. Darker tones represent the deeper part of the rose petals. If you don't use darker tones, there will be no 3D perspectives in your rose pencil drawing.

    Rub your pencil strokes with your finger based on the leaves contour. Make sure you use a fine tip eraser to create the leaves skeleton.

    Use 6B pencil to create darker tones especially the lower part of your rose drawing.
