How to Draw A Forget Me Not – Let’s Get Started!
In this first step of our guide on how to draw a forget me not, we will start not with the flowers but with the stem they will be attached to.
The stem will be fairly thick, and it will be drawn using some curved lines connecting to one another. There will be the main stem portion, and this will branch out into two smaller stems.
You can also draw some small rounded buds on the stem to show where new flowers will be growing soon.
Once this stem is drawn, we will then be moving on to the flowers themselves in the next step of the guide.
Step 2 – Now, draw the first flowers
Now that you have the stem of this forget me not drawing done, we can start to draw some of the actual flowers attached to it.
The forget me not flower has a central portion made up of several rounded shapes, and then it is surrounded by large petals that are rounded but also in a bit of a square shape.
Draw the small star shape at the very centers of the two flowers we’re drawing now, and then use some curved lines to draw the rounded shapes around this central shape.
Then, each flower will have five petals around the center. As mentioned, they will be drawn with some curved lines that have a slightly flatter outer edge.
Add some line details inside of each petal, and then we shall be ready for the third step of the guide.
Step 3 – Draw a third flower for the composition
You’ve drawn two flowers so far in this guide on how to draw a forget me not, so drawing a third one should be a bit easier now!
This third flower will go on the upper left-hand side of the stem, and while it will be at a slightly different angle from the others it will essentially look the same.
That means it will have the same inner shapes, and then will be surrounded by five petals. That’s all there is to it for now, so let’s move on to some more flowers in the next part.
Step 4 – Next, draw some more flowers for the picture
There are just a few more flowers to add to your forget me not drawing before we move on to the final details in the next step of the guide.
These ones will once again look like the others, however to show perspective we will make them progressively smaller.
The first flower will only be slightly smaller than the others, but the second one will be qui7te a bit smaller.
This second one will also be drawn at a slightly different angle, as shown in our reference image. Then you will be ready for those final details as we move to the next step!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your forget me not drawing
You have drawn all of the flowers that we will be including in this guide on how to draw a forget me not, so now you can finish off with the final elements.
As shown in the reference image, we will be extending the stem up from the flowers. This portion of the stem will be thinner than the base and will branch off in a few places.
You can also add some more small buds to the ends of these smaller branches, and then you’re ready to move to the final step!
Before you proceed, be sure to add any additional touches of your own. These touches could include some more flowers, details or even a background. How will you finish off this composition?
Step 6 – Finish off your forget me not drawing with color
This final step of your forget me not drawing will see you finishing off with some color. In our reference image, we went with the classic colors for this beautiful flower.
That means that we used some light yellows for the centers of the flowers, and then finished off with mild blues for the petals.
You could use similar colors for an accurate portrayal of these forget me nots, but you should also feel free to use any additional colors you like for your own variation!
