How to draw a Violet step-by-step

Let’s start drawing now!

Follow the red lines in each illustration to learn exactly what to draw in that step. The lines drawn in previous steps are shown in gray. Here, we’ll show you an illustration of each step and then give you a description of how to draw it.

Step 1: Lightly sketch four circles to show the position of the flowers. Lightly sketch two heart shapes below them for leaves. Sketch curving lines for the stems. Behind the flowers, sketch three more leaf shapes using curved lines.

Step 2: Within the circles, sketch petals using circular shapes. Outline the leaves with scalloped lines. The leaves behind the flowers show that they are folded over. Do this by drawing one side of the shape with a curving line. Draw a second, scalloped line inside the shape.

Step 3: Draw the outlines of the petals with slightly scalloped lines. Draw two short, curving lines in each petal to show ridges. Draw in the stems. Add a scalloped line at the bottom of the stems. Draw a small arc below the scalloped line.

Step 4: Draw in the veins of the bottom leaves using double branched lines. In the leaves that are folded, the center vein can’t be seen. Draw narrow V shapes that curve toward the scalloped edges. Draw tiny circles for the centers of the flowers.

Step 5: Shade the leaves with short parallel lines on either side of the veins. Shade the edges of the leaves with very short lines. Use just a few short lines to shade each of the petals at the tips. Shade the centers of the flowers with a few very short lines.
