In order to be successful in the completion of the tutorials, you will need a few supplies. 

There is an option to do a simple drawing of flowers or you can follow further along and actually color the flowers in using watercolor paints. 

  1. Sketchbook: There is no right or wrong sketchbook. Depends what you like, if you are feeling fancy then you can get a Moleskine, but there are plenty of other more affordable options if you are just starting out like this one on Amazon . 
  2. Pencils:  Staedtler Mars pencils have always been my go to and favorite of all time. I have been using them since I went to art school. Some artists love to use a mechanical pencils to have thin and precise line, that is also absolutely up to you and you preference. I’d recommend this one. 
  3. Eraser: As a beginner, it is crucial to have a good eraser to remove all of your mistakes. I like to have 2 earsers on me, one kneaded eraser from Faber-Castell and another normal one. 
  4. Sharpener: Because if you want to have those fresh and crisp lines, you will need to have your tools sharpened and ready to go. I recommend this one. 
  5. Book: It is a full guide from the artist on how to draw the flowers, where you can learn how to draw flowers off screen and in no time become a pro. Get the book now.

From the front, it is much easier to draw. There is not much perspective that you need to keep in mind when the time comes to drawing the flowers.

 Just add in the rough folds at the end to make it look more closely realistic.
