5 Tulip Drawing Ideas For You To Try

How Do You Draw A Tulip Bud?

  1. To draw a tulip bud, start by drawing a teardrop like shape. This will form our first petal
  2. Next to the first petal, add a curve. This will form out second petal that is hidden underneath the first
  3. Add a small notch under the bud and draw a long slightly wavy line underneath it to form the stem
  4. Now draw a leaf onto the stem- this leaf is long and skinny and will easily make the tulip identifiable.

Simple Tulip Line Drawing

Now let’s draw a small tulip flower, a partially opened tight flower

  1. Start with the first petal, draw a pointy shape but at an angle
  2. Add a second petal next to the first at an opposite angle. Then draw a small curve on the top to form the third petal and close the flower
  3. Add a small notch to the bottom of the flower and a long line as the stem
  4. Finish off your tulip drawing with a leaf

Here is another Tulip Drawing Idea, this one is more of an open flower.

  2. Add three more partial petals with jagged edges on the top
  3. Add a notch to the bottom of the flower and a long stem
  4. Finish off the tulip drawing with two symmetrical leaves with an exaggerated pointy tip
