Color Pencil Sketches Of Flowers

Editor’s Note: This post was originally published in March 2016 and was updated in February 2018.

Before putting pencil to paper, look at the type of colors that are in the plant. Select, at minimum, three pencils — a light, medium and dark tone. This will ensure that you have a dimensional and well-rounded flower. You can certainly use more than three colors, especially if the bloom calls for it.

Take the colors you selected in Step 1 and really study your flower. Figure out where the different hues will go. Ask yourself: Which areas are darker? Which are lighter? What color pencil will I use for each section? A refined sketch will help you decide what color goes where.

After you’ve gone around the petals and colored the leaves, there’s one last step. To give your flowers a blended, smooth look, use a light pencil pigment and color atop your drawing. This won’t alter your color, but the waxiness will spread it and hide the texture of your paper.

Avoid using black! Instead, try layering browns and blues for a beautifully rich, dark hue.

Experiment by layering pigments like red-orange or blue-green to form your own tertiary colors.

In the same color, refine your sketch by drawing smaller, more intricate details. Lightly record the veins of a petal or pollen in the center of your flower.

Step 5 (optional): Finish your drawing by blending the pigments.

I like to use a single color and go around the flower — petal by petal  —until that color is done. Then, I start another color. Depending on the hue, I will layer hues to create a custom pigment (more on that below.)

After you’ve drawn these details, color the flower in using a light touch. This establishes a “base” color from which you’ll build hue and texture. It also doubles as your highlights — the brightest parts of the bloom.

When working with colored pencils, I advise against using graphite for sketching because the two will often clash. To draw your flower, first chose the lightest color that you’re using. (This will be easiest to cover up later.) Start sketching large, general shapes like the outside of the petals and leaves.

One of the most fun parts of drawing flowers with colored pencils is the ability to easily layer pigments. This allows you to create deep, rich hues and even “mix” them together, adding dimension to your work. Try layering blue and red on top of each other — you’ll find they make purple.

This step is the longest (and most tedious part) of the whole process. It’s also the most fun and — believe it or not — relaxing.
