You can use Q-tips as a good DIY solution to blending. If you want to get serious about drawing, you can buy something called a stump (right) or a tortillon (below) from an art supply shop.

Draw one petal at a time, checking where they are in relation to one another. Don’t worry about adding shadows at this point. The main thing is to draw a light pencil outline of the entire flower.

Many have been bred from the wild sweet-briar and the dog rose.

Here is the beautiful rose photo that I used as a reference for this drawing. This lovely rose photo was taken by Tambako and is used here with his permission for teaching you how to draw a rose!

This was my first attempt at drawing curling petals and it wasn’t near as hard as I had first imagined.

If you are easily frustrated when drawings don’t work out, it might be better to practice more flower outlines before you tackle drawing a rose.

With every little attempt I made, I could see an improvement in each one.

I squinted to see the basic shape where the curled portion rested on the petal and that made transferring the image to paper a lot easier.

I got lost around the petals a lot of times, but I persisted and I finally drew one that resembled a rose.

Here is a quick re-cap of all the steps on how to draw a rose:

Find good reference pictures that look to you like they’re easy to copy and that way, you’re sure to always enjoy drawing.

Dark to light: Identify the areas that are darkest, and shade them in first, gradually working towards the lighter sections.Light to dark: Start with the light areas, and shade them in gently. Gradually increase your pencil pressure as you move towards the darker areas.

Make sure that you start out small when you draw the inner petals, so that by the time you draw the outer petals, they’re not falling off the page!

… it only takes a little instruction or guidance…   Read more >>

Be sure to use a light touch, because that makes it easier to erase if you need to make changes.

Don’t ever be discouraged, you should see some of my attempts!

I hope you like these rose pencil drawings and that you see something here that you would like to copy.

After you run the Q-tip over an area, you will find that some of the darker spots will have been lightened, because the graphite was lifted off on the Q-tip.

Roses are more complex than most flowers but still, that’s no excuse for not trying to draw one! Just make an attempt to copy/sketch an easy black and white rose drawing – you’ll probably see results you never even thought possible.

In the outline below, I have purposely omitted the center otherwise it becomes too complicated for copying.

Drawing supplies for how to draw a rose: a regular HB pencil (HB stands for the hardness of the lead. Most pencils sold in stores for general writing purposes are HB.) a kneaded rubber, which is a type of artist’s eraser – but you can use any type of eraser a pencil sharpener a Q-tip (also known as a cotton bud) white paper (but you can use any color paper you want!) a photo of a rose (you can also look at a real rose if you want)

Learn how to draw a rose! This drawing lesson will walk you step by step through the drawing techniques you will need to create your own rose pencil drawings.

Rose pencil drawings are not that easy for a beginner artist like me but I tend to illustrate everything with a fearless attitude because I have nothing to lose by trying.

Here’s an example of what you should look for in terms of identifying the center of the rose:

Here’s a book that finally dispels the mystery of sketching!

Always add effects and detail last – after you are satisfied with a good outline.

Black and white rose drawings have tremendous appeal to those of us who love to draw with graphite.

The arrows point to the innermost petal, which is where I started my drawing.

Please note that your rose pencil drawing can get easily smudged at this point, so try to keep it in a protected place. If you’d like to keep it for awhile, spray it with a final sealant. This will prevent smudging and fading. It will also protect the drawing from UV rays and moisture. The sealant that I use for my drawings is called Krylon Crystal Clear (this links to Blick Art Materials, and if you make a purchase I get a small commission that helps support this site).

Once you’ve drawn the entire outline of the rose, you are ready to start shading. Again, I find it easier to keep track of “where I’m at” in the drawing if I start with the innermost petal and work my way outwards.

To recap, there are 4 main techniques at work to create this rose drawing:

Some plants of the rose family have regular flowers with only five petals.

For this drawing, I used the first method – starting with the dark areas. You can use whichever method works best for you!

You can produce your own beautiful rose pencil drawings just by quickly testing your drawing skills.

This drawing of an old fashioned rose was much easier because it has only 5 petals. I love the simplicity of this rose.

A “hybrid” means they are crossbred from two different varieties.

When you decide to create a drawing of a rose, start by looking at each petal individually to avoid being overwhelmed by the overall picture. The whole concept of drawing is similar to setting goals where it’s easier to set daily tasks rather than becoming overwhelmed by what you need to accomplish in a month. So, one petal is equivalent to a daily goal, it’s breaking the big picture into bite-sized pieces.

One of the best things about learning how to draw a rose is that you don’t need to worry about getting everything in exact proportion. If you draw a petal too large or too small, who’s gonna know? So don’t worry about drawing everything to perfectly match the photo. Just relax and enjoy the drawing process!If perchance you do want to get the drawing absolutely perfect, you can use image transfer techniques such as transfer paper, the grid method, or use an art projector if you want to make a really big drawing.

I hope you do try drawing a rose otherwise you will never know what you are capable of creating.

Sketching the outline of the rose Building and layering – adding shadows Smoothing and blending with a Q-tip Lifting off any areas that are too dark with an eraser

I find that it’s easiest the way to get started with a rose drawing is to identify the center of the rose. Find the innermost petal, and start your drawing there. Be sure to start drawing in the center of your paper, because you will be working outwards.

In this lesson, I’ll show you how I made the rose drawing above.

Attar is an oil from rose petals and it’s been used for centuries to make perfumes.

Roses grow in many parts of the world and they now flower for many months.

Once you’ve shaded an entire area, you can rub the graphite with your Q-tip. This will blend the graphite, softening the pencil markings, making the surface look smooth. This is a great technique to use for flowers to achieve that soft, delicate feeling.

For a bit of extra fun, don’t miss out on seeing the tip on how to do a quick sketch of a rose.

To make those areas dark again, just go back and make some dark pencil marks there. 

Tip: When you are shading, it doesn’t matter if the tip of the pencil has gone dull. In fact, when you are shading it is better to use a pencil that is dull rather than sharp, because this makes for easier coverage.

Continue adding shadows and softening them with the Q-tip. You can also use your eraser to lift some of the graphite off of the paper, which will lighten the areas that you may have overdarkened.

Continue with the shading, working your way around the flower. I worked in a spiral motion, circling outwards from the center.

I found it easier to draw the outside edge when I first attempted to do this outline of a hybrid tea rose. I placed small marks to indicate the height and width which helped to keep it to a reasonable size.

Roses are among the most popular of all flowers and they are a symbol of fragrance and beauty.

I really like this rose pencil drawing created by my Mum but I think I ruined it by making the outside darker, sorry Mum!.

In the picture below, you can see how some of the areas are smoothly blended with a Q-tip, while other areas have quick pencil shading. This shows you how the drawing starts off as a building process of laying down graphite.

To create this flower drawing, I used ordinary materials that you will find around your house. I didn’t want to use any fancy art materials, because I wanted to create a drawing tutorial that absolutely anyone can try – you can try it right now, if you want!

Stumps and tortillons are basically made from a sheet of tightly rolled paper that is soft and sharpened to a point at one end. Because of this point, they allow for more precision and control for blending than a Q-tip does.
