How to Draw Japanese Cherry Blossoms


Japanese cherry blossoms are tiny flowers growing on the cherry trees indigenous to Asia. The blossoms are small and delicate, and primarily pink and white colored. In keeping with their sprightly elegance, they should be drawn with a confident hand. Draw lightly and avoid making sketchy marks.

  • Place the point of your pencil in the center of the location where you want your flower.

  • Draw a tear-shaped petal starting at the point where you laid down your pencil. This petal will be 1/5 of the flower (there will be five petals). It can be pointing in any direction you desire.

  • Repeat step 2 four more times, always starting the petals from the same central point, until the body of the flower has been completely formed. Place the petals at regular intervals around the flower, beginning at the petal you drew in step 2.

  • Draw seven or eight lines protruding perpendicularly from the center of the flower. Make these lines no longer than any of the petals.

  • Draw a tiny ball at the end of each line you just draw in step 4. You have just drawn the stamens.

  • Shade the center of the flower on the petals. The shading should be no more than 1/5 of every flower.
