How to Draw Mother’s Day – Let’s Get Started!
The image we will be drawing in this guide on how to draw Mother’s Day will have a strong floral theme to it. To that end, we will be drawing a rose in this first step.
Drawing a rose can be a bit on the tricky side, as there are lots of intricate petals connecting to one another.
To make this a bit easier, there are a few things that you can do. First, you may want to use a pencil to start with so that you don’t have to worry about mistakes.
Then, follow the reference image very closely and then start from the center outward until you have the whole rose. Once you have drawn this pretty flower you’re ready for step 2!
Step 2 – Next, draw some more of the pattern
For this second part of your Mother’s Day drawing, we will be adding some more to the flower as well as starting one of the hair curls for the mother.
To do this, you can use some rounded lines with sharp points for the two leaves coming down from the flower. Then, you can use some curvy lines for the hair curling down.
Step 3 – Draw some more of her hair
We will be drawing some more of the hair on top of the hair for this part of our guide on how to draw Mother’s Day.
The outline of this portion of the hair will be one solid shape, and it will be drawn with lots of rounded lines to have more curls poking out of it.
Step 4 – Now, draw some of her eyes and some more of her hair
There is a lot that we will be adding to the Mother’s Day drawing, so be sure to take it slowly and follow the reference image closely. We will also take it bit by bit, so let’s get started!
First, we will start with the face for the mother, which you can ‘attach’ to the hair shape that you drew in the previous step.
You can use some simple lines for the eyes, nose and mouth for the mom, as shown in the reference picture.
Then, you can use the methods you used for the mother’s face and hair to draw the head and face of the little baby that is with her.
You can then use some more curved lines for the blankets the baby is wrapped in along with its little hand.
You can also draw a second rose between their heads. With these elements added, we just have a few final details to add in the next step.
Step 5 – Finish off the final details of the drawing
It’s almost time to start coloring in your picture, but first we have a few elements to add in this step of our guide on how to draw Mother’s Day.
First, use some curvy lines to create a wavy banner at the base of the drawing. In our image, we wrote the word ‘mother’ in some fancy font to finish off the theme of the image.
If you wanted to use this picture as a card for a loved one, you could also add your own words or phrase to the banner instead!
We also added some more flower details around this banner for more pretty elements for the picture. With those added, you have finished all of the details in this guide!
This is your drawing, so you can also add some elements and additions of your own that you may like as well.
Perhaps you could change up some of the details and make the mother in the picture look like your own mother or even yourself! How will you finish off this drawing before the final step?
Step 6 – Finish off your Mother’s Day drawing with some color
The final step of your Mother’s Day drawing will be all about finishing it off with some amazing colors. In our reference image, we showed you some colors that we would choose for this picture.
These could be colors that you use as well, but you could also use some colors of your own that you may love.
You could keep the colors more realistic, but it would also look great if you used some more stylistic colors for it.
Then you can have some fun while choosing which art mediums and tools you will use to bring your colors to life.
There are many options you could go for, so what do you think you will do to color in and finish this picture?
