I thought I would brighten things up a bit and do a tutorial on a beautiful yellow flower called the Yellow Hibiscus. I thought with Easter right around the corner, (8 days to be exact) this would be the perfect flower to learn how to draw because it is a traditional Easter yellow. Some information on this flower would be helpful I think, for starters this Hibiscus has over 200 species in the same family, seven of which are native Hawaiian Hibiscus. Known to local Hawaiians as the pua aloalo in the Hawaiian language, it is the state flower. This beautiful yellow flower originated in Asia and the Pacific islands. Interestingly, it is also the national flower of Malaysia. It wasn't until 1988, that the yellow hibiscus which is native to the islands was selected to represent Hawaii. In some old post cards the red hibiscus is displayed as the state flower. Now, a group of woman initially wanted to beautify Honolulu and its surrounding areas by planting beautiful trees and flowers, so what they did was form a group called “The Outdoor Circle” back in 1912, but is wasn’t until 1920 that this group chose all colors of the hibiscus, their official Territorial flower. In addition to the yellow hibiscus, each Hawaiian island has its own designated official flower. Oahu’s flower is the yellow ilima, the Big Islands has a red ohia as their flower, Maui’s flower is a pink lokelani, Molokai has the white kukui blossom, Lanai’s flower is the beautiful kaunaoa, Niihau uses the white pupu shell as their official flower, and lastly Kauai, they use the mokihana, this is not a flower at all, it is actually a green berry only found on the slopes of Mount Waialelae. This flower, as well as all the flowers of Hawaii truly is a sight for sore eyes. Just looking at the sheer beauty that these plants have can make anyone’s gloomy day turn into a bright sun filled experience. With this tutorial you will learn "how to draw a hibiscus", step by step. The instructions are always easy to read and follow. So step up top the drawing plate and create your very own bouquet of yellow hibiscus flowers.

How To Draw a Hibiscus

how to draw a yellow hibiscus step 1

STEP 1.

Okay this is going to be a very easy tutorial, first what you are going to do is draw out the guidelines and circle shapes to form the shape of the yellow hibiscus. Start by drawing a total of 5 pedals. Most of them are round shaped except for the two that appear longer. Next draw the stem line and and leaf stems. Now draw the actual leaves that surround the flower.

STEP 2.

Now here in this step what you are going to be doing is shaping the pedals into their true form. They have jagged looking edges this makes the yellow hibiscus unique and beautiful. Next, thicken the stem by drawing two lines on both sides of the guideline you just previously drew in step 1. Now move down to step 3.

STEP 3.

This is a very short step because all you will have to do is sketch out the jagged edges of the yellow hibiscus leaves. These leaves resemble those thick hard pointy leaves found on some roses and other popular flowers. After you sketch out the detailing on the leaves you can proceed onto the next step which is step 4.

And finally here is where you will be sketching out the inside of the yellow hibiscus. First draw a line that starts off kinda thick at the base and thins out at the tip. Now draw tiny little circles for the colorful seeds that lay perfectly erect in the middle of this beautiful flower. After your sketch looks like the one above, erase all the guidelines and circle shapes you drew in step 1.
