I absolutely love flowers! Why you may ask, well to be perfectly honest, flowers are very forgiving when it comes to drawing and painting them. As long as we make sure to keep the main intricate parts of a particular flower where it’s easily recognized, then we are set.
For today’s study, we will be focusing on a Hyacinth flower. So what are the intricate parts that set apart a Hyacinth flower compared to other flowers. First, upon studying the flower, we learn that it’s smaller flowers grow in larger cluster group flowers that appear to make a cone. Next, we find that each of it’s individual flowers have 6 pedals that come together almost like a star. We also learn, on closer examination that these flowers grown in a opened “cone” shape with tiny stamen (or those tiny pollen collectors) at the center. We also learn that their leaves grow closer to the base of the plant and and grow upward in a “tear drop” shape. So, already we have learned a lot about this plant just by observing it. If we can make sure to draw these intricate items into our drawing, someone will easily recognize our flower and be impressed with how detailed our flower turned out.
Your probably thinking now, “Okay that’s great but where do I begin?” Well that’s what I’m going to teach you today. How to draw a Hyacinth flower from scratch.
