How to Draw a Lotus Flower

The lotus plant has a distinct flower made of a central pod leading out to large, gorgeous petals. From classic paintings to modern art, lotus flowers are often used to depict beauty, purity, and grace. Thankfully, they’re also very simple to draw if you know the process.

Steps

  1. Draw an oval with some dots inside it.This will be the seed pod.
  2. Draw the first layer of petals surrounding the seed pod.
  3. Draw the stamens around the seedpod.
  4. Draw the second layer of petals.
  5. Add some details by drawing 2-3 curved lines on the tip and base of the petals.
  6. Draw some sepals at the base of the flower.Add two long, curved lines for the stem.
  7. Color your drawing.

    Don't add color tonality; color the flower in with a solid color (no light or dark areas). Use a black or grey outline.

    How should I shade the petals?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    If you are focusing on the center, which looks best, you would shade both sides a medium tone of the color, and blend using your finger or a tissue, moving from the center, out to the right, or from the center, out to the left.
    Thanks!

    How do I draw a more realistic lotus flower?

    Community Answer
    Your shading and highlighting will help a lot if you plan to color it with any sort of color, but if you want it to be a pencil-only drawing, use a tissue to blend out shading lines, and place shading strategically.
    Thanks!

    Draw a circle, to be the base of your design, then draw the lotus. Afterward, add the lily pad detail.

To draw a lotus flower, start by sketching an oval with dots inside to represent the seed pod. Draw a layer of petals around the seed pod to give it shape, then add stamens between the pod and petals. To add complexity, draw a second layer of petals around the first, then add 2 or 3 curved lines to the tip and base of each petal. Sketch some sepals at the base of the flower, then finish the drawing with two long, curved stem lines.

  • The lotus flower is often confused with a similar look, but completely different plant, the waterlily (Nymphaea)). Be careful not to make this confusion when drawing the lotus flower.
