Step 4:

Now, draw a spiral inside the oval. Draw the spiral in the shape of an oval and not a circle. It will make your inner part of the rose look better.

Now that the leaves are complete, draw the stem of the rose. Draw two vertical lines from the center of the two leaves with a very little gap in between to make a thin stem.

Step 9:

Erase the part of the U that intersects with the petal we made in step 5. Draw a small vertical curvy line in the middle of the main body of the rose.
