Red Roses always seem to steal the spotlight when it comes to drawings, or picking roses in general.

Give love to other colored roses, too—like white roses, which represent purity and innocence, or lavender roses, which signify fascination and charm.

Mofukawa, for example, designs a rose with blue petals, symbolizing the unattainable because it’s not naturally occurring.

Roses need not be realistic to look pretty; Garbi KW‘s adorable drawing exemplifies that.

The thick outline and the shadings adjacent to it enhance the kawaii characteristics of this rose.

One rose signifies one true love, just like in Beauty and the Beast. The meaning of a bouquet of roses can vary depending on the number of flowers.

Let’s explore the different significance of a bouquet of roses.

Sometimes in a bouquet, the presentation of roses is just as important as the flowers and their condition.

Should you use a bolder color or a soft one that remains in the background? Should the ribbon be showing, or let the other components stand out?

The possible arrangement of a bouquet is endless. Take inspiration from Draw So Cute‘s kawaii, pink bouquet with a giant ribbon.

15. Roses for Valentine’s Day

While roses are the main star—or focal flower—of these bouquets, adding other flowers provides a serene break from the monotony of the red roses.

Whether you’re secondary flowers to include your mother’s favorite calla lilies, or adding textural fillers to make it seem more organic, it’s important to note of the style you’re trying to convey.

In their video tutorial, EasyDrawingTutorials prioritized simplicity and elevating the elegance of the roses in their bouquet.

Let’s not overlook the important parts of a rose: the stem is a food delivery system; the leaves absorb energy from the sunlight and air; the petals attract pollinators…

Without a comprehensive approach, an artist will never reach their potential.

So don’t focus merely on the alluring flower; follow the lead of Drawing For All.
