Let’s bring a little sun out today by learning how to draw a flower in our kawaii art style.

It’s amazing how adding a simple face to an object can turn it into a character and give life to it. It’s a great idea to keep that in mind when drawing as an amazing way to add extra life or details to a picture.

Drawing a flower is a lot of fun and one you learn, you can add them to so many other kawaii pictures you might draw. You can even combine them with our other tutorial that will teach you how to draw a rose.

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • The hands and arms can be tricky. Take it slow and start with the thumb to help space and size the hand.

Let’s Draw A Flower  – Step By Step

Step 1: Draw one nice circle. This will be the middle part of our flower where the petals will connect.

Step 2: Draw one of the petals as shaped above. Start at the midpoint at the bottom of the circle and follow the arrows. This will be our guide for the rest of the petals.

Step 3: Draw the second petal starting from the curved side of the first petal. Next is the third petal which should end at the midpoint of our circle above.

Step 4: Add two more petals – one following the third petal on the top and the other one, beside the first petal at the bottom right.

Leave enough space between these petals for the last petal we need.
