Tulip painted rocks
Tulips are one of my favorite spring flowers. I can’t be the only one who loves tulips! Once I see tulips popping up, I know that spring has officially sprung. Because tulips are the theme for week 12 of our #52Rocks! challenge, I wanted to share my quick trick for drawing a tulip. It really makes this flower rock super easy and a perfect rock painting idea for beginners!

How to draw a tulip onto a rock!

Step by step instructions for this flower rock:
These tulip painted rocks really stand out if they are painted onto a base coat. I used a nice blue background. To add a quick base coat to your rocks, check out my tips here.
Start by painting a nice green space for your tulips to grow out of.
To draw a tulip, draw a lower case “Y” wherever you want your tulip to be. Add a mountain top to the middle. The finish it up by drawing the letter “U” from each point of your “Y”.
If you want a little more bloom in your tulip, just give the edges a little curl.
Fill in the tulip with a lighter color. If you paint over your lines, that’s ok. Just go back over the lines with your dark color.
Tulip stems are very straight, so just draw a nice line going from the base of the bud to the grass. Add a couple of leaves at the bottom of the stem.
101 Tip!: If your rock is lumpy, don’t press down too hard! It will keep your pen from splattering.
Finally, some highlights to the stem and grass with a lighter green.
You can stop with one painted tulip, or you can paint a rock that’s lined with them!
Pin this Spring rock to your favorite Pinterest board!
