If you’re anything like me, you too must’ve struggled with your orchid drawings. I love these flowers, but drawing them seemed like a hassle to me. This idea, however, was completely changed once I drew them with the help of a few tutorials. If you too can relate to my problems, I recommend you try the same orchid drawing tutorials as I did.
There are two basic ways to draw the orchid. The first is a side view, which is very simple, and not that complicated. Then there’s the upper or cross-sectional view, which can get a bit complex at times.
This drawing tutorial, directed towards kids, will show them an easy and simple approach to drawing orchids. It’s a straightforward drawing process, and doesn’t have any complex step in it. The tutorial will guide them through the whole process, and they can easily understand how to draw an orchid in the simplest way possible.
This video tutorial will show you how to draw orchids. It’s a step by step lesson, and is very helpful for both beginners as well as professional level artists. The pencil strokes are very smooth here. There isn’t any roughness to this drawing. You might feel a bit uncomfortable with the scribbles right at the edges of the drawing, but you can always erase them.
The drawing shown in this video is done with pen and ink, and it’s a simple, yet beautiful design. Of course, the details are missing, and the plant lacks a proper appeal. But, I’d like to think of this as a minimalistic approach to drawing orchids, and consider these missing features as nothing but minor inconveniences. If you want, you can add those features by yourself later on, and see how you can transform this simple piece of art into something a bit more elaborate in nature.
For our next video, we look at an orchid branch drawing demonstration, that’s both easy to understand, and draw. You can replicate this drawing very easily, and without any difficulties. Observe how the artist takes one step at a time to complete this artwork. I find this drawing to be quite charming, despite its lack of details.
This orchid branch drawing is a bit rough, and loose. I think it’s a perfect place to start if you’re a beginner, or if you want kids to work on their orchid drawing skills. I personally didn’t bother to give this artwork a try, simply because I felt that it’s more suitable for complete beginners. Newbies will find this drawing to be quite interesting, and can even expand on it by using their own creative genius.
This is a fine drawing of an orchid, and kind of reminds me of the flower drawings you’d see in science or biology books. But I think if you sketch or even color it a little, this drawing would look even more appealing. That being said, the drawing is perfect the way it is, and the demonstration is also well-structured, which will help you to understand the process even better.
In this demonstration, you’ll be introduced to a quick and easy orchid drawing process, that’ll take you only a few minutes to complete. You could sketch the flower with a pencil once you’re done with the drawing. That way, it’ll look a bit more appealing. The details are missing here, otherwise it would’ve been a perfect 5 out of 5 for me.
This is one of the best orchid drawing demonstrations, as well as one of the best orchid drawings on this list. It’s a realistic drawing of the flower, and is quite detailed. The sketch, although a bit rough, still manages to give the drawing a nice look. I recommend you give this sketch a try if you’re familiar with live portrait sketching, or sketching in general. Try to see if you can elevate the appeal of this artwork by giving it a proper sketch, with proper shades and transitions.
This video tutorial for beginners will show you how to draw an orchid with a smooth finish. No sketch, no rough patches – this drawing is all about the simplicity, and how you can present a flower as beautiful as the orchid in the simplest way possible. The presentation of this drawing is nice, but I wish it had done a bit more work on the details. That would’ve give this drawing a more appealing look.
The orchids in this drawing are very neatly drawn, and sketched. The sketch has minimal shades, and has a subtle appeal to it. It’s not perfect, but it’s very well done. I think the drawing could’ve used a bit more work in terms of the details, but it’s no biggie. After all, you can’t expect so many things from a drawing that’s aimed at beginners.
My husband and I are learning how to draw and paint. We wanted to share this learning process with the world and have fun! That's why we created this blog. We'll have drawing contests every week and you'll decide who won that week! Follow along and learn with us!
