Flowers, how beautiful are they? About as beautiful as a flawless symmetrical face. Today I will be showing you "how to draw a tulip flower", step by step. I have been really obsessed with sketching flowers using my new drawing program. The tulip is a flower of Spring, and when you start to see them spout from the ground you know Spring is here. I have always loved tulips because they are such a simple flower that come in a variety of pastel colors. Easter is also a time where the tulip is used. Folks give other folks these flowers as gifts whether it be in the form of a bouquet, or a small potted plant ready for transfer. I do hope you like drawing a tulip flower, because I know I did.
