It’s spring and I am fascinated with all the flowers blooming. I’ve always loved flowers, but this year is the first in a long time that I am able to watch the progress each day around my yard as they go from buds to full blossoms. Flowers, like all of God’s beautiful creation, have so much intricate detail. If you read the post a couple of weeks ago on Weekend Wonderings, I talked about getting close to the flowers to see those details.
Today we are going to take that a step further and play with drawing some flowers. Usually when I am doodling, my default flower to draw is a daisy- probably because daisies are my favorite flower. But there is so much more that can be drawn! But to get comfortable with it, you have to play with drawing other shapes.
Speaking of shapes, see how many geometric shapes you can find in the flowers as you look at them.
Grab your pencils and paper and get ready to draw. I am posting some pictures of some flowers that I thought would be fun to draw, but you might want to go out into your own yard and draw some flowers you have growing at your place.
Don’t worry about making it look perfect. Just relax and start drawing what you see. We are just doing line drawings, so you don’t have to try to put in shading, etc. (unless you want to.)
Have fun drawing! The sun has peeked out and I am going out to take more pictures in my yard. See ya!
