Drawing a rose can seem complicated, but it's actually simple. Drawing the flower in simple steps will make the task easy. It might take a few attempts to get it right, but the effect is quite impressive. This technique will work for drawing a black rose as well as any other colour rose an artist would like to draw. Having some reference, such as a photo or an actual flower, also can help.

    Drawing a Black Rose

  1. 1

    Start by drawing a vertical oval to be the centre of the flower. Create a wrap effect by adding a wavy line diagonally through the centre of the oval.

  2. 2

    Draw varying petals around the original oval shape. These petal shapes should vary at least by one shape being a soft "B" shape and one with a "}" shape. Keep adding these shapes around and one behind the other until you have the look you want.

    Once you are happy with the amount of petals, draw the leaves. These will be in the shop of a teardrop with a point at the end. Draw a line through the middle of each with lines going across it as well. You can draw as many or as few leaves as you'd like.

    Colour your rose in with your black coloured pencil or watercolours. If you'd like, you also can colour in the leaves to be green. You also can add a stem.
