How to draw an IRIS

Step 1
First draw the flowers with light and smooth lines. All flowers are usually started drawing with the center. So, outline the flower middle and then draw each petal.

Step 2
Now outline the position of the leaves on the iris stalk. You have to try as the leaves are often as beautiful and complicated in the structure and shape as the flowers themselves. The thoroughly drawn leaf defines the flower structure and is a fine contrasting background for it.

Step 3
You should give a flower a volume shape depicting it as volume lines. Now draw the flower pistils and stamens.

Delineating light and shade is very important as light stresses the convex parts of the flower and makes shade in the parts which are far from lighting. Eventually you`ll have such a picture:
