Flowers are one of the most beautiful elements of our planet and have an important part to play in a balanced ecosystem. Learning more about them is a privilege – and we have all that you need to know below – let’s get learning!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a curved “m” shape in the center of your page, bringing the bottom sections inward. Take a line down on either side.
Next, take each line out and down, and then connect these at the bottom with a curved line.
Reflect this with another shape below the first.
Add two curved lines inside the bottom section of the top shape…
And then add three curved, square “n” shapes inside this.
Bring two wavy shapes out on either side, angling towards the top of the page.
Now, add a wavy line to the top, connecting the two side sections.
Add two curved points to the bottom of each side.
Use a thicker black pen to bring two lines up in the center…
And then use the thinner black pen to add two tall oval sections to each of these thicker black lines.
Grab a pencil and a ruler, and add a series of horizontal lines all around the outside of the flower.
Use a black pen to add labels to the correct sections. From the bottom left corner: pedicel, sepal, petal, filament, stamen, anther, stigma, style, pistil, ovary, ovule, receptacle.
And then use the black pen and ruler to connect the labels to the relevant parts of the flower.
Add an arrow head to the end of each line…
Now, add a “masculine” sign to the “sepal”, and a “feminine” sign below the “pistil”, demonstrating the male and female aspects of the flower.
Use an eraser to remove the pencil marks…
And then use a green pen to shade the stem and bottom of the flower, as well as the section above this.
Use a light blue pen to shade the pistil section…
Then, use a yellow pen to shade each anther…
And use a pink pen for the petals.
Learning the parts is only the first stage in learning more about horticulture and flowers – this is an amazing and fascinating topic, with plenty to learn and discover!
