Despite their beautiful appearance, lilies are relatively easy to sketch because of their elegant shape but simple form. It is possible to draw a lily with several different techniques, so experiment until you find one that suits you.
There’s no flower more eagerly awaited during these seasons than the lily. Every variety of the lily has its own symbolic symbolism? Liliums have specific meanings associated with them, such as femininity, energy, and admiration.
This subject has been highly requested due to its stunning beauty and extreme popularity. In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a lily in simple steps and in basic steps.
How to Draw a Lily
The center of the circle should be raised a bit from the surrounding smaller one.
As guides for the petals, on each side of each curve draw a diagonal line.
The first petal should resemble that of an elongated leaf with a couple of folds at its base.
A similar principle applies to the second, which is shot from a different angle. There is a double margin at the bottom to indicate that the picture has been folded.
There is no pointed end on the third one. It just curved a couple of times in that area.
Let’s draw four filaments that are thin and round with oval anthers. Find the points where they cross.
While the fourth petal has a similar shape and folds to the first two, it is different in terms of size and orientation.
As a complement to the third petal, the fifth has a unique structure.
Leaves are slender and curled around the flower’s edges in a border. The bud is oblong, unopened. The lines on their bodies can be seen clearly.
Add the last petal that appears complementary to the first one, but covers a little of the first. Erase the guide lines and emphasize the center.
Pink flowers and green leaves can be applied to a cute flower. A green filament with pink anthers makes for a striking combination.
Create an irregular oval by pointing one end and leaving the other open.
Connect the opening of the second oval to the point of the first by drawing another open, irregular oval beneath it.
Connect the second oval with an open third oval.
Use a curved line to create a fourth open shape. Make sure it connects to the third oval.
Close the gap between the first and fourth ovals by drawing two more curved lines in an M-shape. You will achieve the appearance of an irregular flower.
Then, start extending your petals. By extending curving lines, you can form blunt points on the three petals sitting on the left.
Make blunt points out of the three petals on the right by extending them with curves.
Make the petals more organic by erasing the original oval lines.
Others are now ready to be drawn. Draw two curving lines parallel to the petals. Create a small oval by connecting the lines at their tips.
Including all the remaining anthers, extend them upward from the flower’s center. Once again draw two parallel curved lines and an oval to connect them.
Identify the first two anthers as well as the two additional anthers. Both designs will have two curving, parallel lines and a small oval.
In the two top anthers, remove the visible guide lines.
Make the petals more detailed. Just below the base of the anthers, draw a small “U” shaped line at the flower’s center. You should now extend a gentle curving line toward the tips of each petal from the center of the flower. Your petal vein is formed in this way.
The next step is to draw the stem. At the bottom of the flower, draw two parallel, curving lines. The two lines should meet in the corner of a small oval.
You are about to begin the leaf. Follow the curved line up the petal, starting from the right side of the stem. Continually curved lines to the right should follow. Those lines will form the veins of the leaf.
The next step is to draw the leaf by tracing two wavy lines. As the lines run parallel along the stem of the leaf, they bulge outward, forming the leaf body, and meeting at a point just beyond the tip of the leaf vein.
In order to form a second leaf, you will repeat this process. Starting at the left side of the stem, draw a curved line.
Use two wavy lines, extending from the leaf’s body and connecting at a point to represent a leaf.
Petal speckles are characteristic of many lilies. Embrace this detail. In each petal vein line, draw small open circles, circles, and dots. Make a short, straight line run down the vein line of two petals.
Create a lily by coloring and shading it. The Easter lily comes in a number of colors, however, we suggest shading with a similar color scheme. If you want to color the anthers, the flower center, and the area around the veins, use a light green for the anthers and the cream for the cream petals.
Make a flower shape with three evenly spaced petals on the left side of the page. Add three more pointed petals between each of those four so that you have six in all.
Create some curved lines and ovals at the top of the flower in the middle.
Create a teardrop shape, upside-down, with two small bumps on the rounded end of the top. Next to the first flower, draw a teardrop shape.
Over the first petal, make a “V”-shaped shape using two curved lines. Next, add different curves at each end pointing toward the middle petal.
For the final three petals of the second flower, draw curved lines.
Add curved lines and ovals to the ends of the second flower to create the center.
At the bottom of the page, draw the stem connecting the two flowers.
Create a stem for the flowers with a few leaves.
Colors can range from pink to orange to white to yellow to red to white to yellow.
Start by drawing a slightly rounded oval with an irregular bottom end. These are the petals of the lily.
Make Lily’s two first petals. We have drawn the first petal in the previous step. We now need to draw a curved shape on the left side of it. These two curved shapes are the second petal. In the previous step, we drew another petal with the upper part touching the first petal.
Create the third petal. Form a third petal for the lily by repeating the previous step on the opposite side. There may be some differences in appearance between this petal and the previous one, so don’t worry about it. It shouldn’t be a problem if it follows the same structure. In this step, the lily should now have three complete petals.
Make the fourth lily petal. Just beside the left one, draw a fifth petal. It will serve as the fourth petal.
Continue by creating the Lily’s 5th petal. Create the fifth petal by repeating the previous step. It is expected that this petal and its predecessor look somewhat similar, but they do not have to be the same shape.
Completing the Lily’s six petals. In the middle of the back of the flower, draw a curve. A lily flower’s sixth and last petal is this. All six petals are now complete on the lily.
After that, draw the stem and leaves. Draw two parallel lines beneath the petals of the lily starting from below, moving up to the other parts of the flower. The result will be the long, thin stem of the lily flower. Then, draw a wide, irregular oval shape on each side of the stem that tapers toward its ends. A stem’s left and right sides are formed by this process.
Make the Lily more detailed and pattern-filled. Each petal and each leaf should have a thin line stroke. The more texture you add, the more realistic your flower will look!
You now need to create the Lily Stamen. In the middle of each petal, draw five lines. In a lily flower, this is what makes up the stamen, a male structure. Make sure the stamen have a pitch-black color. Now you have a beautiful lily.
Having chosen the colors, let’s now color the lily. This is the most exciting part. The colors of lilies are range from white to pink, red, yellow, purple, and orange, among others.
As shown above, begin by drawing three petals.
A third petal should be drawn between each pair of petals.
The petals and stamens should be drawn first, followed by the stem to the left.
The stem should contain a leaf, then a bud.
Lastly, color the beautiful flower, and you’re done!
