Do love the elegance of roses? A single long stem rose is classic and beautiful. If you would like to learn how to draw a rose bud that is simple and sophisticated looking, follow these steps.
Draw a basic cup. Think of this shape when you begin drawing. Imagine its shape standing up. Only start to draw a rosebud after you've lightly sketched the basic outline of a cup.
Continue by drawing the inside and working your way out. When you draw a rose bud, draw it just as the flower blossoms, from the inside, and opening out. Begin with small, curved shapes inside the rose.
Continue the rose by drawing concentric "circles." When you draw a rosebud you want to draw organic circles. That is, make the edges of the petals a little wavy as is natural, but think back to the cup image as though there were ripples in the water glass. When you draw a rosebud from a 3/4 top view, as shown, notice the circles are elongated into ovals.
Continue to fill the inner part of your sketch to draw a rose bud as large and detailed as you wish.
Draw a rose bud with petals. In this step you will make the silhouette of the rose look less like a cup, and more realistic. Start the sides of the petal of the rose bud. Now is the point where you create the elegant outline of the rose. When you draw a rosebud the outside petals curve up and slightly out as the rose blossoms.
Add a stem and leaves if you wish.
