How to Draw Lavender – Let’s Get Started!

Step 1drawing lavender step 1

A lavender flower may look simple at first glance, but they are actually made up of some fairly intricate detailing. We will start with these small details in this step of our guide on how to draw lavender.

Taking it slowly and going step by step will be the best way to build up this beautiful flower, and for this first part we will start with the tip of the flower.

The flower is made up of lots of smaller buds attached to a central stem, and we shall draw that now.

You can start by drawing some small, rounded shapes that will form these buds. There will be a small cluster of them at the tip before we will be able to see the stem of the flower. Then, there will be a larger cluster of buds beneath this.

Step 2 – Add the next clump of budsdrawing lavender step 2

We will continue adding on to your lavender drawing in this next step. In this step, we will be adding another clump of the buds that you were drawing in the previous step.

As you can see in our reference image, this clump will be much larger than the first one was. Simply draw a big bunch of buds and then draw the stem coming down further from it.

Then, we will be ready for step 3, so let’s proceed!

Step 3 – Next, draw more buds for the lavender flowerdrawing lavender step 3

You’re really getting the hang of this guide on how to draw lavender! For this third step, we will continue what we have been drawing for the last few steps.

That means that you will be drawing another fairly large clump of buds onto the stem below the last bunch that you drew in the last step.

Step 4 – Draw even more buds in this stepdrawing lavender step 4

As you may imagine, we will be drawing another clump of buds in this step of your lavender drawing.

You’ll see in the reference image that this clump will look a little bit different from the previous ones that you drew. It will be one of the larger bunches on the flower, but this size will be made by making the buds a bit larger than they have been instead of drawing lots of smaller ones.

Then, you can finish off this step by drawing the stem extending down from this clump that you drew.  There will also be a small leaf poking out from this stem, as shown in the reference image.

That will leave you ready to add some final details in the next step, so let’s move on!

Step 5 – Now, you can add some final details to your lavender drawingdrawing lavender step 5

We will be moving on to the final step where you color in your picture soon, but first we have a few final details to add in this step of our guide on how to draw lavender.

First, we will be drawing another clump of buds. This one will be a bit smaller than the last one, and the buds will be smaller yet more numerous.

Then, we will draw the rest of the stem, which will be quite long and slightly curved. We will also be drawing some long, thin leaves coming off from the stem, as shown in the reference picture.

That will finish off the details in this guide, but before you move on you could add some details of your own as well.

You could draw a background, and maybe even fill it with some other flowers that you may love to finish it off. This is just one idea out of many you can go for, so what else can you think of to finish off this image?

Step 6 – Finish off your lavender drawing with some colordrawing lavender step 6

This is the sixth and final step of your lavender drawing, and this is the step where you get to have fun coloring in your amazing drawing!

Lavender has a very distinctive pretty purple color, and that is what we went for in this example image. You can use this as a reference if you would like to keep the colors realistic to how lavender looks in real life.

You could also use some of your own color choices for a more stylistic image if you prefer! Then, you can choose which art mediums you will use to bring the colors to life.

Watercolors can work very well for softer colors like these, but brighter mediums like acrylics and colored pens can work equally well.

We can’t wait to see what colors and art mediums you choose for this image!

Your Lavender Drawing is Complete!

With that, you have completed this guide on how to draw lavender! We hope that you had a lot of fun completing this pretty drawing alongside us, and we also hope that by having some steps to follow that you found it to be much easier.

Now that you have completed this guide, be sure to keep personalizing it with your own details and elements as well.

We mentioned a few ideas such as drawing a background to finish it off, and you could also draw some more of your favorite flowers with it. What will you choose to finish off this image?

Lavender is one of those flowers that, at first glance, looks complicated to draw. There are so many pretty little petals bunched together. So it might seem daunting to draw!

But it’s really not that hard! Once you break it down, you’ll realize that drawing lavender is just a series of simple steps.

And in no time, you’ll be able to add your cute lavender doodles to your bullet journal spreads! (or for any other purpose).

Understanding Lavender Flowers

Before we dive into the steps for creating a drawing of lavender, it’s helpful to understand the lavender flower.

Notable Characteristics of Lavender Flowers

  • The petals of lavender flowers are rounded, long, and narrow.
  • Lavender petals grow in an upward motion.
  • There are several types of lavender flowers and each one looks slightly different (the lavender drawings in this post most closely resemble the lavender flower called Lavandula x intermedia and the one called Lavandula angustifolia).
  • Lavender flowers tend to be thinner at the top, thickest in the middle, and mid-sized at the bottom of the flower.
A lavender flower, its scientific name being Lavandula x intermedia or Lavandula augustifolia with a butterfly sitting on it.

Understanding how lavender petals look and grow will make it a little easier to draw.

For example: Since we know the petals tend to grow in an upward motion, we can implement that when drawing the petals by drawing them upwards in the direction of the stem.

Now let’s get into how to draw lavender and make a gorgeous drawing of lavender.

Lavender Drawing: Video Tutorial

If you learn better by seeing things in action, I got you! Check out the video tutorial I created:

How to Make a Drawing of Lavender: Step by Step

Follow these step-by-step instructions for creating your lavender drawing.

Step 1: Draw the Stem

The way you draw your stem will depend on your style. I like drawing my stem with a little bit of a natural curve to it, but you can also draw it straight.

Step 2: Add the First Petal

Draw the first lavender petal at the top of the stem.

Original illustration tutorial showing "Step 2" in the tutorial. Petal with an arrow pointing to the drawing example.

Step 3: Add More Petals (One on Each Side of the Stem)

Lavender flowers are usually thinner at the top and thicker towards the middle and bottom. So to achieve this shape, start with smaller petals at the top of your lavender drawing.

I find it helpful to separate the drawing into petal bunches. So at the top of the flower, the petal bunches only have two petals – one for each side of the stem.

You can see an example below:

Step 4: Add the Thickest Petals in the Middle

The next step in your lavender drawing is adding your thickest petals towards the middle of the flower.

After the 2-petal bunches, draw a few 4-petal bunches (2 petals on each side of the stem).

Then, draw a few 6-petal bunches (3 petals on each side of the stem).

Step 5: Add Smaller Petals at the Bottom

After finishing your biggest petal bunches from Step 4, draw a couple smaller-bunch petals. You can draw 2, 3, or 4 petal bunches here.

I also recommend adding some extra petals at the bottom of the stem, like I did in the example below:

Step 6: Draw Leaves at the Bottom of the Stem

The final step of your lavender drawing is to add some leaves! Just draw some long and thin leaves at the bottom of your stem.

And then ta-da! You’ve created your own drawing of lavender.

If you want to color your lavender, you can use pencil crayons, markers, watercolors, or any other material you want.

I know some people just skip straight to the markers or watercolors, so I created a quick guide for that as well.

How to Draw a Colorful Lavender Drawing

If you jump right into the markers, watercolors, paint, or another colorful medium, then I’ve created some extra tips for you.

This is one of my favorite ways to draw lavender if I’m skipping the pencil/pen.

Step 1: Draw a Lavender Outline

Start by drawing the outline for your lavender drawing. You can follow the steps from the tutorial above.

It’s okay if your petals overlap and look messy in your outline – you’ll be coloring it in anyway!

Step 2: Color in the Lavender Drawing

Color in your lavender with your choice of purple. I chose deep purple, but you can do a lighter purple as well.

Step 3: Outline the Lavender Drawing

After coloring your lavender, I suggest outlining it with either light or dark purple (whichever one that you didn’t use to color it in).

This will distinguish your lavender petals from each other. It will also add some volume and depth to your drawing!

Step 4: Add Highlights to the Lavender Drawing

Now it’s time to add some finishing touches! Feel free to add some light purple or white to some petals for a nice highlight. You can do the same for the leaves, as well.

The first step in creating these simple lavender drawings is getting the petals right.

To get just the right effect I used a variety of different sized petal doodles.

You start at the top of each stem with the smaller petal doodles and gradual increase the size.

You will use these petal doodles below for each lavender stem drawing.

Step 1

Draw a line the length of the lavender stem. Try not to draw a straight line as it looks much more natural and realistic to have a slight bend to it.

Step 2

Next, draw 5 of the petal doodles which have three parts to them. I centred them so they cover the top stem of the lavender doodle.

Step 3

The next part is 4 of the 4 petal doodles. Keep going down the stem with the petal doodles.

Remember they don't need to be perfectly spaced apart. Nature is rarely perfect.

Step 4

For the next part you want to draw 3 of the 5 petal doodles. You can see that the lavender drawing is now getting fuller and starting to come together.

Step 5

The six petaled doodles are next. You only need two of these. They make up the bottom petals of your lavender drawing.

Step 6

Finally, add a few leaf doodles on the bottom of your stem to finish off the lavender stem drawing.

Step 7

Now repeat steps 1-6. You can make your lavender plant as full as you like or need to cover the space you are drawing on.

One piece of advice I was given which I always try to follow is to make your flowers in groups of uneven numbers.

So think 3, 5 or 7. It really does make a difference to the effect of your flower drawings.
