How To Draw Cherry Blossoms, Free Worksheet.


Lightly draw two or three circles to place the blossoms where you want them on the paper. Make them interesting and not in a row. At the center of each circle draw a smaller circle. The cherry branch is mostly straight so lightly sketch a line going across the blossoms for the branch behind the blossoms. Place two or three leaves behind the blossoms coming off of the branch.

There are five petals on the blossom, use five lines to divide the circles into even sections. Inside each section draw a teardrop shaped petal. The petals should not touch each other.
The center of the flower is a circle of short fuzzy hairs just draw short wavy lines in a row on the circle.
Draw little circles halfway between the ends of the blossoms and the center. Connect the circles to the center with a thin line.

The branch has little bumps where new growth is happening, draw one or two little bumps on the branch. The leaves have a fold in the middle, draw it as a line and then use a shadowing technique on one side of the line so it looks like a fold. The branch is darker than the leaves.
