Well guys, this is the last of the lessons I have for you today. I thought I would end the drawing day by submitting another very popular flower that is well known around the world. It seems as though there is a bunch of different flower species that I could draw, but when I’m thinking of a flower to sketch out and make a tutorial out of, I can never seem to find the perfect idea. Ideas pop in my head without warning. I could be sitting at the kitchen table doing nothing at all, and out of the blue will come an idea for a lesson. So having said all that jazz, I thought it would be nice to show you "how to draw a jasmine", step by step. Not only is this a beautiful plain looking flower, the species type comes with a very popular name that is used for so many girls across the world. The jasmine flower usually comes in mainly white, but there are other jasmine species that can also be found in yellow. The plant was originated in the Himalayas of the western part of China. One of the wonderful things that the jasmine has to offer is their incredibly fragrant scent. Like roses, the jasmine smells the best when they are in their bud stage. They release most of their scent during the dusk hours. Did you know that this plant or flower is harvested particularly for their scent? It’s true, because the jasmine has such a strong sweet odor, the plants oils are extracted and used in cosmetics, perfumes, and even in calming agents. The simplicity of the jasmine sometimes makes us wonder how such a plain looking plant, can be so special. I guess the answer lies in the scent. That does it for me for the day, but you can stick around and "draw a jasmine" while you wait for me to do another live session. I will be back tomorrow with more drawing fun so be sure to come back then, or stay a while and keep browsing. Peace people!
