Here’s a compilation of easy rose drawing ideas to try out in your sketchbook or doodle page.
Roses can be difficult to draw so I tried to simplify them as much as I could.
I have also included several step-by-step tutorials to make them less confusing.
I have a previous rose drawing tutorial, but this one is the new and improved version with more drawing ideas.
I hope that this blog post can help you feel more confident in drawing roses.
Before, roses were very difficult for me to draw, but after finishing this blog post, I feel like I’ve gotten so much better at drawing roses!
I hope you can feel the same way too 🙂
Drawing Tip: First start off by creating a pencil sketch of your drawing. Once you are satisfied with your pencil sketch, go over it with an ink pen or whatever medium you prefer. Then once the ink dries, erase the pencil sketch underneath to reveal your finished drawing!
Don’t worry about drawing perfectionism – The more you draw, the better you will get and the more your drawing style will develop.
Instead, focus on losing yourself into creating your drawing and let your day’s stress melt away.
I hope you enjoy. Now let’s get to drawing our roses!

1. Step by Step Drawing
To start off, here’s a step-by-step drawing of a rose to try.
Step 1 might look complicated but it’s essentially a messy swirly line.
You can draw a more symmetrical-looking swirl but wonky is good too.
For Step 2, draw the rose petals as shown below.
Next, we’re going to draw the bottom of the rose like so!
Next draw a curvy line from one of the petals down to the bottom of the flower.
We’re almost done with our rose drawing!
Next, draw the stem, some leaves and thorns. And feel free to color in your rose drawing whatever color you like!
Didn’t it come out so pretty?! I hope you enjoyed this one ^^
2. Swirly Rose
This is the way I grew up drawing roses and thought it would be a perfect addition for this blog post.
Below is a step-by-step on how to draw it!
3. Rose Bouquet
Here’s a simple rose drawing idea of a single stem bouquet to try out on your doodle page.
4. Side-View of Rose
Here’s a side-profile view of a rose to try drawing as well.
5. Heart Rose
I tried to create a rose using a heart shape as my initial step. I hope you enjoy this fun little step-by-step tutorial.
Step 2 might look complicated but it is just a messy swirl inside the heart. Hope that helps 🙂
6. Rose in a Vase
I love drawing flowers in vases so I had to include this idea in this blog post as well.
7. Girl with Rose
I hope you enjoy this simple drawing idea of a girl with a rose in her hair.
8. Rose Petals
Here is another step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a rose.
Essentially, they all start with a messy little swirl for Step 1. Then each layer of petals is added with each additional step.
If you’d like to keep the rose simple, you can stop at step 3 as well.
9. Moon and Rose
You can use the previous step-by-step tutorial to help you draw the rose.
I then added the moon and stars to give it a more whimsical twist.
10. Beauty and the Beast Rose
Here is a doodle of a rose inspired by Beauty and the Beast to try out as well!
11. Wilting Rose
I think roses look beautiful no matter what life stage they are in, so here’s a doodle of a wilting rose to try out.
12. Give a Rose
Here’s a simple rose drawing idea of someone giving a rose.
13. Cat and Rose
I love drawing cats so I had to include a little cat friend in this blog post as well.
14. Detailed Rose
Here’s another step-by-step rose drawing. This one has a bit of a twist since I started drawing the rose from the bottom petals.
15. Bird with a Rose
Here’s our last rose drawing idea with a little bird friend.
I really like how the rose came out in this drawing. It’s very simple but has a unique style to it. Hope you enjoy drawing it 🙂
