Short Video: How to Draw a Lotus Flower
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.
