How to Draw a Tulip in 3 Steps


1. Draw the Outline

If you're careful, you can draw two tulips in only three steps. First, draw a straight stem for one tulip. Make the line for the left side half as long as the line for the right side.

On the left side of the stem, draw a large, curving leaf. At the bottom of the stem, draw another leaf shape. At the top, draw the sides of the tulip like an inverted bell.

Behind the right-hand leaf, draw another, curving stem with a tulip shape at the top. Behind the stem, draw another leaf curving upward between the two tulips.
