Roses are one of the most well-known flowers out there, and they are commonly drawn since they are a symbol of love. However, due to their many layers, they can be a real challenge to draw. You can learn to draw a rose if you are willing to pay attention to detail and carefully shade the entire rose to add proper dimension and depth. The following is a quick guide to help you draw the perfect rose every time.


1. Gather Your Art Supplies

The good news is, you don’t need that many supplies on hand to get started. You will need a hard pencil, a medium soft pencil, and a soft pencil to help with the guidelines and the shading, but if you only have access to a regular pencil, you can change the power of your stroke to help adjust your lines. Of course, you will also need a sheet of paper to draw the rose on, and it is always handy to have a pencil sharpener nearby in case your pencil dulls.
