How to Draw a Simple Rose Fast
While blue roses don't appear in nature, you can draw a rose in any colour. ( Images)

Roses are frequently subjects of art because of their beauty and their symbolism. The assortment of strains and colours symbolise different things. For example, a yellow rose represents friendship and joy, while an orange rose represents desire and enthusiasm. Although roses in their different strains have a variety of appearances, most kinds have the same distinctive shape formed by the petals. The distinctive shape means you can draw a rose quickly.

  1. 1

    Draw one long line for the stem of the rose. It doesn't have to be perfectly straight.

  2. 2

    Make a petal at the top of the stem. It should be an oval, but pointed at the tip of the petal and where it connects to the stem. The petal should be at a 60 degree angle to the stem.

  3. 3

    Make another petal behind and above the first petal, so that it's pointing straight. Draw it with a pointed tip, like the first petal.

  4. 4

    Draw a spiral shape between the petals. It should extend from the side of the second petal, then swirl around a few times in the space between the two petals.

  5. 5

    Make two short lines from the edges of the spiral down to the petals to connect it and add dimension to the flower.

  6. 6

    Draw one arching line resembling half an oval from the second petal around the side of the spiral and connect it to the first petal. This will form another petal behind the spiral petals in the middle.

  7. 7

    Make a fold to one of the petals by drawing a curvy line from one side of the petal to the other.

  8. 8

    Draw a line parallel to the first line of the stem to make it look thicker. Connect the two lines at the bottom with a point to make it look like the stem was cut at an angle.

  9. 9

    Draw a leaf or two from the stem on either side. Use the same shape you used for the leaves, or make a new shape.

  10. 10

    Add details, such as a colour or thorns to the stem.
