We go on talking about flowers. And this time we will talk about many different flowers. A bouquet symbolizes love and romance. We have an idea why men give flowers to women. Where did this tradition come from?
The first version:
Long time ago, when they didn’t sell water in plastic bottles, there lived only two people on our planet: Adam and Eve. And all would be fine if one of them didn’t wish to eat an apple. I guess everyone knows this story. Poor Eve was so upset that they wouldn’t live in paradise anymore and God gave her a bouquet. Such a beautiful story!
The second version:
There is another story. In times of our great-grandmothers, after hunting, men brought home not only meat but also a lot of flowers. So men should remember that bread-winner brings home flowers too. At that time it wasn’t a sign of attention. The flowers were dried and used as a medicine.
Step 1. First we sketch the contour of the vase. Above we draw circles – the buds.
Step 2. We draw the vase and then flowers: the stems, cores and leaves.
Step 3. We show small flowers among the big ones.
Step 4. There is a pattern on the vase – a heart. Now we draw flowers – roses. You can have a look at the lesson about drawing roses.
Step 5. Now we do hatching. We hatch small leaves and the cores more. The petals are lighter. I think our bouquet is ready. You can color it now.
Thats all folks! =)
