ibiscus grow in single- and double-flowered varieties, and their colors include whites, oranges, pinks, and redsâ€”even blues and purples. Some are multi- or bicolored. The example here is a single-flowered variety.
Hibiscus Bud Detail Try drawing a few buds, and attach them to stem branches around your drawing for variety.
iy Planning Your Drawing Even though the hibiscus has a lot of detail, it isn't difficult to draw. Steps leading up to the finished drawing must be followed closely to get the most out of this exercise. Step 1 shows the overall mass, petal direction, and basic center of the flower. Consider the size of each flower part in relation to the whole before attempting to draw it.
Shading Before shading the petals in step 2, study where the shading falls and how it gives the petals a slightly rippled effect. Add the details of the flower center, and block in the stem and leaves.
