Spring is approaching

The first flowers are slowly emerging from the ground. Spring is slowly but surely coming! That’s why, out of pure anticipation, today we want to draw a butterfly with you. Usually, our drawing tutorials are rather realistic. Occasionally, however, we also create tutorials that are a bit cuter and simpler. Like this cute butterfly. We wish you lots of fun!

And since we are talking about spring: why not drawing some tulips as well? 

Drawing a simple butterfly

Before you start, take a close look at our drawing instructions. Make sure the butterfly has enough space on your paper and that its wings fit on it. Then, you start with the first step. Actually, the body of the delicate creature is somewhat like an elongated drop. At the top, it’s round so we have space for the face. Everything highlighted in red is added in the respective step. In the second picture, the butterfly gets two dots as eyes and the upper wings. It looks best if the wings are approximately the same size and symmetrical. Feel free to try it several times with a soft pencil before moving on.

By now adding the lower wings about the same size, your insect is almost finished. Under the eyes, you also draw a cheerful smiling mouth. Two antennae go on the head. If you like, you can already consider your butterfly drawing finished here. In the fourth step, we curled the antennae a bit and drew some patterns on the wings. But here, you can also let your imagination run wild!

Butterflies in cheerful spring colors

So, your drawing is now complete. It’s best to go over the lines with a black fineliner to make them bold and long-lasting. When it comes to colors and patterns, you can now let your creativity run wild! Of course, not all color combinations exist in the butterfly world, but there are quite a lot. Besides, this is your very own butterfly, who is happy to shine in your favorite colors.

Let’s Draw Tulips!

Spring is almost here now. Colorful flowers are sprouting everywhere from the ground. Or they’re growing on bushes and trees. Meanwhile, the sun is shining down on us under a blue sky. To preserve a bit of this beauty for home, it’s a great idea to draw it. So, let’s start with drawing tulips! Because they are currently enchanting many gardens and parks with their colorful splendor.

Step-by-Step Drawing Guide for Tulips

Unlike many animal tutorials, you’re often much freer with flowers and plants. Because they always grow a bit differently and come in various varieties. That’s why this drawing tutorial includes three different tulips to trace. You’ll see, it’s not so difficult at all!

So, if you want to draw tulips, you can start directly with the leaves. For this, simply draw a large V on your sheet of paper. The lines can be slightly curved. From the center of the V, in the second step, the tulip stem emerges. Draw two parallel lines upward, straight or slightly curved. In the third step, finish drawing the leaves.

Painting Tulips in All Shapes and Colors!

Do you see that steps 4 to 5 occur multiple times? That’s because here we can draw different tulips. You can choose a flower head or draw several stems for multiple flowers.

Of course, you are also completely free in the color choice of your tulip splendor! There is probably hardly a color that doesn’t exist in tulips. Two-colored flowers are also common. Red-yellow? Purple-white? Orange-pink? Just give it a try and draw a whole colorful tulip meadow.
