Plants are one of the most important elements of our planet, and understanding them is crucial to respecting and appreciating our planet. To help with this, we are going to learn how to draw and label the life cycle of a plant – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a black fineliner pen to add a small half circle shape to the right of the page, making the bottom of this a little wavy.
Bring a series of curved roots down from the bottom.
Add a “bean” shape to the left of the original shape, and add a mark and a dot inside this.
Now, add another half circle shape below this, angled at around 45 degrees, and add a wavy line to the bottom.
Bring a wavy leaf across to the left, and add a line to the center.
Bring two lines down, widening as you go, and add another root system to the bottom.
Add two small oval shapes to the bottom of the leaves.
Bring two curved, wavy lines up on the left, and add two small leaves to the top.
Add leaves down the length of this stem.
Draw a half circle shape, with a wavy top, to the bottom of the stem.
Add a small teardrop to the top of this…
Bring small circles up from the top of this…
And then add a loop shape to the sides and the bottom.
Bring petals up at the side…
And then add two curved shapes to the top of the diagram.
Add small “bean” shapes inside this, and then add more of these to the right.
Use a red pen to connect the stages with arrows.
Grab a green pen, and shade the beans at the top, and the roots in the second and third stages.
Use a brown pen for the space under the leaves on the third stage.
Use a green pen to shade the leaves, the beans, and the roots in the third stage.
Use a yellow pen for the small sections above the root on the fifth stage.
Use a purple pen for the petals on this stage…
And use a brown pen for the soil at the bottom of the fourth stage.
Label the stages from top to bottom: “SEEDS”, “COTYLEDON”, “SEEDLING”, “ADULT PLANT”, “FLOWER”.
And there we have it – the life cycle of wonderful plants; and there is plenty more to learn!
