Flowers are some of the most prettiest things to draw when sketching out plants. I have always been fond of the rose and if you look at some of my tattoo art you can see what I mean. I know that many people love these beautiful flowers, and even more people love drawing them out. The only problem is, drawing roses is one of the more complicated flowers to draw, which then leads to people drawing something else. What is it that makes these flowers so hard to draw? I think it's because roses have so many different layers, and their layers all look different. Now, because I know how complex this plant can be to replicate, I've decided to do a lesson that teaches you “how to draw a simple rose, step by step”. I do have a tutorial already on a rose, and I talk about their meaning when it comes to choosing a particular color to give as a gift for a loved one or friend. Instead of me drawing a delicate looking flower, I wanted to draw a bold looking rose so that drawing it would be a bit easier for the artist. Let's face it, drawing dainty things can be frustrating because they are drawn small, or frail looking making it hard to get lines right and shapes correct. All in all I do think that this will be a helpful lesson, and hopefully you will learn “how to draw a simple rose”, easily. As you know I will be back, have fun with this tutorial. When your done, choose a color for your rose to express how you are feeling right now, or give the drawing to someone you care about. Adios people!
