This post will instruct you how to draw a calla lily. We will draw attention to the shapes of each part and variety of contours created so that the artwork looks convincing.
Time Needed: 30 minutes
Start The First Flower
Start off near the top of the page by drawing a shape similar to the number eight (8) with the bottom right missing. The top of the shape should also have a few small bumps on it.
Finish The First Flower By Connecting Lines
Connect the bottom of the shape to the top right using a curved line. Use another, smaller curved line to make the left side. In the middle of the flower, add a small bump.
Start The Larger Second Flower
Use a similar shape as the first flower, but with a larger top.
Complete The Second Flower
Connect the lines on the bottom like the first time. Add two lines coming from the middle, these are the creases where the flower petals fold. Draw a small bump in the middle as well.
Start The Third Flower With A “P” Shape
The third flower is seen from the side, so it will look different. Draw a shape that is similar to the letter “P”
Finish The Third Flower
Connect the bottom of the third flower to the top right with a curved line.
Add The Stems
Add in the stems of these flowers.
Add The Leaves
Draw in a bunch of leaves near the bottom of the flower stems.
Color It In
Calla lilies come in all different colors, not just white. Some colors they come in are yellow, orange, pink, purple, and more.

About Calla Lilies
Calla lilies are a large genus of flowering plants in the family Callaecaceae. The name “calla lily” comes from Castilian Spanish.
In the English language the name is pronounced “call-uh-lee”. Calla lilies are perennial plants, related to other genera of the family, such as the sunflower and daisy.
The flowers are zygomorphic, with four symmetrical petals that can be white, red, yellow, or orange. In the wild, calla lilies are more commonly orange or yellow, but can also be white as well.
