How To Draw Lavender

If you've ever found yourself enchanted by the soothing charm of lavender fields and dreamt of bringing that tranquility onto your sketchpad, you're in the right place.

In this step-by-step guide, we'll embark on a creative journey together, exploring the art of drawing lavender.

Drawing lavender is very easy and this DIY tutorial will show you exactly how to draw lavender with markers or paint pens.

Lavender is one of those plants that are easy to draw because the petals don't require exact placements or drawing to make them look perfect.

Here is how to draw lavender with easy instructions.


Step 1

First, draw a little pot to hold the lavender stems in. This will give your lavender drawing a super whimsical look. Using a dotted grid notebook will help keep your little pot even.

Step 2.

Take your lavender colored marker and draw the lavender flowers. You don't have to draw them in perfectly. In this tutorial, everything is loose and whimsical. Just draw on the color here and there for now. You will draw in the details in step 4.

Step 4.

With your black fineliner, draw in the petals and flowers. If you think of the petals in kind of a heart shape that will be super helpful. So just draw them onto the lavender color that you just laid down. Draw some overlapping, and also slightly different sizes just like the real lavender plant.

Tips for drawing lavender

  1. Observe Real Lavender: Begin by observing real lavender either in person or through high-quality images. Pay attention to the arrangement of the flowers on the stem, the shape of the leaves, and the overall structure of the lavender plant. This observation will provide a solid foundation for your drawing.

  2. Start with Basic Shapes: Begin your drawing by lightly sketching basic shapes to represent the overall form of the lavender plant. Use simple ovals for the flower clusters and long, slender shapes for the leaves. This initial sketch will serve as a guide for more detailed work later.

  3. Focus on Details: Lavender is known for its slender spikes adorned with tiny flowers. Pay attention to the details of the individual flowers, the arrangement on the spike, and the characteristic shape of the leaves. Adding these details will bring realism to your drawing.

  4. Play with Perspective: Experiment with different perspectives to make your lavender drawing more dynamic. Consider drawing lavender from a top-down view, a side view, or even a slightly tilted perspective. This variation adds visual interest to your artwork.

  5. Use Layering for Depth: Lavender has a layered structure with flowers stacked along the spikes. Create a sense of depth in your drawing by layering the flowers and leaves. Start with the flowers in the foreground and gradually add the ones in the background.
