Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the bellflower. With smooth lines, mark the direction of a branch and some leaves. Outline ovals that will become open flowers.

Step 2

Delineate the shapes of the rest of the bellflowers.

Step 3

Draw petals with light lines.

Step 4

Draw some additional lines to show the shape of the flowers.

Step 5

Continue adding detail. Add petals to the closed flowers. Draw a basic guideline for the branch.

Step 6

Draw petals and leaves on the lower part of the branch.

Step 7

Pay special attention to details, such as the stamens, stigmas and filaments. Outline more carefully the shape of the petals and leaves.

Step 8

Contour, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Draw more details and the general shape of the table. Erase all guidelines.
