How to Draw an Orchid in 5 Steps


1. Sketch the Outline

Lightly sketch an oval for the center of the flower. On each side, sketch a large curve that connects to the top of the oval. Connect the bottoms of these two lines with a wide U shape.

Sketch three large ovals near the small oval center. Sketch two half circles for the remaining petals. Draw two straight lines for the stem. Sketch a leaf shape with two curving lines. At the top, sketch another leaf shape.
