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.

Step 1: Create a rough outline of the small flowers by sketching small circles. This is where you will soon draw in the flower’s petals.

Step 2: In the place of the outline, add in the petals of the flower. Look closely at the flower and place the petals where they will follow where they should be. 

Step 3: Finalise the design and erase unnecessary lines.
