How to Draw a Plant Arrangement in 7 Steps


1. Sketch the Outline

Lightly sketch a bowl with a short base at the bottom. At the left, sketch five curving leaves with slightly angular lines. This will be a sansevieria.

In the center, sketch four curving stems for palms. Sketch a long, narrow oval leaf at the end of each. To the right, sketch four circles to show where violet flowers will go.

Around the circles, sketch four broad leaf shapes. For ivy leaves, draw a series of heart shapes that come down the side of the bowl.
