The Easiest Brush Pen Flower EVER

Are you ready to learn how to draw the easiest flower doodle ever?


Tons of you have written in or commented on my posts asking for more floral tutorials after my how-to-draw floral tutorial series. This miiiiiiight not be the flower tutorial you had in mind, but I am so stoked to share this easy flower tutorial with you!

First Things First…

The links below may be affiliate links where appropriate. This means that your purchase through these links may result in a few cents in payment to me, to support creating further resources like this one! That being said, I will never suggest supplies that I do not personally use and fully recommend.

Supplies Used

  • A brush pen (any brush pen will work – just make sure it’s a pen with a flexible tip that reacts when you add pressure to it)
  • Paper
  • Pencil (this is optional but helpful)

Rather watch than read? No problem! Feel free to follow along in real-time as I draw these easy little flowers! ??


Step 1: Draw a light circle

With your pencil, draw a small circle – about the size of a pencil eraser. 


Step 2: Push down with your brush pen at the edge of the circle 

With your brush pen, put the tip anywhere along the line of the circle and push down. It should look like a flower petal once you lift your brush pen. 

The amount of pressure you apply to your brush pen will impact the size of the petal. Try to keep them consistent.


Step 3: Rotate the page, making petals as you go.

Continue to make petals, and turn your page as you go. Go along the whole circle until it’s full of petals. 

Feel free to experiment with not rotating your paper if you prefer to adjust your pen instead of the paper. I typically prefer the final result better if I rotate the paper (I can control the pen a bit more that way), but feel free to try out both methods.


Step 4: Fill in the centre with dots. 

You can use the same colour or a different colour to add some dots in the center of your flower. The dots make your flower a bit more interesting. I just used the fine tip end of a Tombow brush pen to make my dots, but you can use whatever pen you have available. 


BOOM! DONE. You just made a FLOWER! How easy was that!? 

There aren’t super strict rules here. Feel free to play around with the thickness and size of your petals as well as the colours. This is a great doodle for cards, note taking, or drawing with your kids. 

So what do you think? Let me guess – you’re thinking: that’s it?! All that hype tor THIS flower? Yup! It’s super fun, super easy, and super perfect for doodling. It’s not a super serious floral or anything, but I can guarantee it’ll make an appearance in my meeting notes and to do lists in the future.


And that’s a wrap!

Oopsie daisy! I almost forgot your dad joke. 

Why do flowers always drive so fast?
They put the petal to the metal.
