I have another flower lesson to add to the collection but this time it is already something I did in the past as a pair. So today I will be teaching you "how to draw an orchid", step by step instead of orchids. In the previous tutorial I talked about this beautiful flower, and how so many people love it. They are essentially a versatile plant flower species because you can grow or keep them right in your home with ease. Of course growing these flowers in the wild might be a challenge, but you can easily buy an orchid already grown, and in a vase right out of Lowes, Home Depot, or another favorite home improvement store or nursery of your choice. This is going to be a very simple lesson to tackle so don’t fret on it being too hard. The steps are easy to follow, and the instructions are going to be a breeze to read. You can even draw an orchid for the main image of a Valentine’s Day card, or even a birthday card. As you know people often give orchids to one another to say I love you. Anyways, have fun people and don’t forget to add some creativity to your work. Peace peeps!

STEP 2.

Now draw out the first two pedals of the orchid and as you can see they are connected or should be drawn as one piece. They almost look like a pair of lungs at this point. The little lump in the middle should also be drawn in.

Sketch out the center part of the orchid flower like so, and if you look closely, it actually looks like a jaw, and a middle tooth that aligns with the top nod you drew in step two.

Lastly for this lesson, draw out the remainder of the pedals which should be three. The middle one should be in the shape of a spear tip, and the other two should be rounded points as well. Erase the guidelines you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.
