How to Draw an Iris Flower Worksheet

How to draw an iris flower printable worksheet is a rewarding project that can have a very satisfying result. Parents, teachers and homeschool families will be able to use this in a lot of ways in class and home.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:  Do not get discouraged if your drawing does not turn out the way you wanted. Learning to draw takes practice, so do not give up. Draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects.
How to Draw an Iris Flower Worksheet. 
To print just highlight and send to your printer. Some find it is better to drag the worksheet to the desktop first and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above for help.

The iris flower is a little random so we develop the composition loosely with a scribbling technique then go over the lines to clarify the drawing.

Start by scribbling lightly so you can erase later. Begin with a guideline up and down and another going across it vertically near the top to keep things even.

Lightly draw a large egg shaped circle at the top where the two guidelines cross. At the center of the cross draw the first down pointing petal, it is shaped like an upside down teardrop. On both sides of the flower draw the down turned petals. Above that draw an oval on the guideline going up and down. Around the oval draw a circle these form the basis of the petals.

Scribble in the stem and blade like leaves.

On the petals add folds and wrinkles by scribbling random circles and lines. Work the wrinkles into the edges so the shape is irregular.

Look at the best lines and go over them to make them stronger, broader and darker.

Erase any extra lines.

The iris can be any color but most often it is violet.
