How To Draw An Orchid Flower Worksheet, Free

How to Draw an Orchid is a simplified instructional worksheet for beginners and young artist. Parents, teachers, and home school families may print a copy for personal and classroom use.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your sketch of the orchid does not turn out the way you hoped it would do not give up, you are learning and if you are critical of your work it shows you have the gift of being an artist since a true artist is the most critical of their own work. Learning to draw takes time so draw every day and soon you will be a good artist. Come back daily and print another worksheet and draw the project I have lots to choose from. Some people have a talent for flowers others have a talent for people or landscape so try different subjects soon you will find where your talent is.

To print the free worksheet above just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later. If you have problems printing see the how to print tab above for some tips, or try the link to the updated file below the image.

Start by drawing a light rough sketch to get the project centered on the page. Sketch a large circle for the flower at first and a short cylinder for the pot. The stem is just a double line that curves one way then the other.

Draw the flower in two steps the first is the larger petals. The first two start as two curving lines like large parenthesis on the outside edge, then connect with a line between them shaped like the letter U at the top and a upward curving lines below. Behind the first two petals are three petals shaped like rounded diamonds, their points form a triangle.

The flower has a center made of three leaves, two curve out and in above and one curves down and up below. Start with three inward curving lines that almost make a circle. Connect the lines with thee lines that curve inward and back out. There is a little upward edge on the bottom petal that looks like the letter U.

Add large leaves that are drawn with two curving lines which come to a point. Shade the flower pot to give contrast.  Shade the background to make the flower stand out.
