Before photography, botanical illustration was used to document the shape, color, and details of plant life, but today, many contemporary artists and illustrators still strive to show the beauty of flowers through their art. One of those artists is Kate Kyehyun Park, who paints beautiful flowers in watercolor.

The growing portfolio of the Korean illustrator shows her talent for creating beautiful illustrations of botanical watercolors but does not reserve her skills. Instead, he shares his drawing tips on Instagram, detailing the various steps to represent different types of botanical ingredients with pencil and paper. From poppies to cosmos flowers, his instructive drawings show how you can also achieve perfect proportions and realistic details in just 3 steps.

First, Park breaks down the flower in simple ways. For example, their hand-drawn tulips begin as a line for the stem and simple oval shape for where the petals are. Then add details, refining the shapes of the petals and how they overlap each other. The third step is to further refine the shapes and add smaller details, such as petal veins and textured centers. Now that you know the secret to drawing flowers, you can draw entire flower gardens!
