Step by Step Tulip Drawing Tutorial

Steps 1-2-3-4:

Draw a wide “U” shape in the middle of your paper.

Then draw two “V” shapes on the top of the “U” shape, keeping 1-inch distance from the “U” shape. Join the two sides of the “V” shape with the “U” shape using vertical lines. This will create the base for your tulip flower drawing.

From the left “V” shape draw a diagonal line connecting the bottom. Similarly, draw another diagonal line from the right side of the “V” shape connecting the middle part of the previous diagonal line.

Draw two more upside-down “V” shapes on the gap between the front petals.
