It is easiest to use a reference picture showing the exact type of lavender you’d like to draw. You can look up a picture on Google, for example, or borrow a gardening book from your local library. Sketching usually helps, though in this case, you could start with the stalk and then draw the small oval flower buds in rows that are attached to a flowering lavender plant.
This answer space isn’t long enough for a detailed answer but it’s a great request we’ll consider adding as an article later.
Would you like to be able to draw your own smiling, happy flower? Now you can, using this simple, easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial. All you need is a piece of paper and some drawing tools, such as a pencil, pen, colored pencils, crayons, or markers.
Draw the basic outline of the petals. The petals at the front should be differentiated from the petals at the back.
In just a few easy steps, you will have your own smiling cartoon flowers to brighten your day.
You can make drawing easier by using basic shapes and then adding details. To draw a flower, all you need are some circles and ovals, then you just add the details. Of course, practice is always recommended too.
Complete your sketch by coloring your flowers. Make them any color you want – have fun!

Are there any tips to help me draw easier besides practicing?
Draw semi-circles around the smaller circle thus, making a flower-like structure. Then you could add something in the middle.
Draw lines extending from the lower part of the oblong which spread in four directions. Draw a curved loop also at the bottom of the oblong.
Practice makes perfect. Draw as much as you can. Doodle throughout the day. Look at pictures and attempt to draw what you see. Go back over your mistakes to improve upon them, and keep trying until you succeed. There are not shortcuts.
Add two more circles to form the outer border of the flower petals.
Add the guides of the petals and the leaves. Draw 2 petals in front and a petal at the back of the 2 petals totalling to 3 petals. The leaves of tulip are long and not straight so the guide lines for the leaves should be long curved lines.
Draw another petal using the same principle and lines along the oblong.
Practice! Draw all the time and soon you’ll see yourself getting better. As you learn, you can teach yourself to perfect things that you struggle with.
Color the drawing and add some shadows and definition lines.
Extend a short, curved line from each side of the center flower’s stem. Draw similar lines from the left side of the left secondary stem, and the right side of the right secondary stem. These lines will form the veins of leaves.
You could sit in a dark room, turn your brightness all the way up and trace over the picture.
Repeat the process to add detail to the petals of right flower, again using five wavy lines.
Draw two curves at the oval one from the left and the other at the right.
Now, you will add faces to your flowers. Within the center circle of each flower, draw two smaller circles for eyes. Below the eyes, form a smiling mouth by drawing a “U” shaped line. Draw a short line perpendicular to each end of the “U” shaped line.
Use the last “U” to guide you in sketching the petals similar to what you did on the first and second “U”. You can also add more petals if you wish for a more appealing rose drawing.
Draw a bigger circle which has the same center point with the small circle.
Add thorns on the stem. This is best drawn using pointed angles. Add details to the rose’s leaf, do not forget that it has a serrated margin.
Draw a connecting smaller oval figure at the top of the parallel lines to form the top of the flower.
Create a rough sketch of the flower and leaves as illustrated in the picture.
Refine the drawing and trace with a pen. Erase unnecessary lines.
Complete the mound of grass by connecting the far sides with a straight line. Add detail to the veins of the leaves by drawing one to two short, slightly curving lines extending from both sides of each leaf vein.
Draw the petals of the flowers using curves. Use the circles as guide.
Draw curves which connect the lines to form petals for the flower.
Start drawing the actual lines by the small circle at the middle.
Sketch the petals surrounding the bigger circle. They should be almost of the same sizes and shape.
You could either press lighter when writing or just not overlap the drawing where it says to overlap.
How do I find a website that doesn’t overlap lines, as I write too hard and can’t erase my own drawings?
Use different shades and colors. Try to use inspiration from the flowers you see around you, and don’t forget to draw in and color a background.
Draw slanted lines crisscrossed over each other inside the small circle.
Draw the grass in which your flower is growing. To draw grass, use short, curved lines that come together in a point, both at their base and at their tip. The result will resemble connected curving triangles with no base line.
Draw five petals around the circle. Each petal will consist of a curved line in the shape of a very rounded “M.” The bottom two petals should connect the flower to its stem.
Dancing, smiling flowers have been a common part of many cartoons for decades. A famous example of this is the 1932 “Silly Symphonies: Flowers and Trees” cartoon produced by Walt Disney. Today, such flowers often grace sunny window sills in the form of solar powered, plastic “dancing flowers.”

Draw a vertical oblong. Below the oblong, draw a slender rectangle that would serve as the plant’s stem.
Now, you will add detail to the petals. Beginning with the flower on the left, add a wavy line to the interior of each petal. Each line should extend from the flower’s circle center, form three humps, then attach to the center once more.
Draw five loosely “M” shaped petals around the circle. The bottom two petals will connect the flower to its stem.
Draw an oval to form the outer edge of the flower leaves. Add two parallel lines and connect the parallel lines at bottom as shown in the picture.
Sketch a rough outline of the rose, and then start drawing the petals. Use the “U” >> shape first.
Draw curves which extend upward in the oval to resemble budding.
Outline the leaves using two curved lines each. The lines should extend from the stem and come together to form a point with the leaf vein line.
Draw a curved vertical line to represent the stalk and add a leaf on one side.
Draw another wavy line parallel to the first. The lines should be closer to one another at the top than at the bottom. This forms the main stem.
Repeat this process to add detail to the center flower’s petals.
Within each eye circle, draw a smaller circle. You can determine the direction in which the flower appears to be looking by drawing this small circle on that side of the eye. Draw a tiny circle within each small circle. Shade the small circle.
Draw curved line. Sketch another one(slightly bigger) below the first until you are able to draw three similar shapes.
Sketch a circle for the flower and a long slightly curved line for the stalk.
Draw a bigger circle. Make it look like a disc so you could remember the basic outline of a daisy flower whenever you draw one.
To draw a flower, start by drawing a small circle in the center of a piece of paper. Then, draw 5 petals coming off the circle that are evenly spaced apart. When you’re done with that, draw a second set of petals that overlap the first set. Finish your flower by drawing a stem that extends down from the circle and then adding 2 leaves on each side of the stem.
Each step in this guide is illustrated. Note that the new markings in each step are highlighted in blue. Sketch your lines lightly at first, as you will be required to erase some of the guide lines that you draw early on.
Sketch the petals so they seem to overlap each other, on the first “U”.
Repeat step 3 until you have fully covered the edge of your inner circle.
Add more petals to cover up empty space using pointed angles.
Shading is just adding a darker color to the parts of the object light does not reach, and adding a lighter color to the areas that the light shines on directly.
Draw five “M” shapped petals around the circle. The bottom petals will connect this flower to the main stem.

Begin drawing the petals with two line strokes, up and down directions. Always begin drawing the actual lines with a mirror effect.
Flowers add cheerfulness wherever they grow – or wherever they are drawn. This is especially so when they also wear smiling faces.

Flowers are a great subject for beginner artists and experienced artists alike. Their symmetrically placed features make for a fun exercise- whether it be pattern work or an exercise to learn how to juxtapose overlapping shapes.
Draw a big circle and then draw a smaller one at the center.
Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered.
Add more detail. Draw lines in the leaves and in the petals for a better outcome.
Draw other petals which occupy the space left in the circle. They don’t all have to be in the same length.
Draw another curved line parallel to each of the curved lines you just drew. These lines form secondary stems.
