How to Draw a Daisy Flower in Pencil Step by Step
Everyone is able to draw a daisy flower. A few petals, a stem with leaves and your daisy flower is ready. However, not all daisy flowers look realistic. The thing is that you start drawing the daisy flower with petals. You need a good eye to draw them symmetrical and equal, even more so if you are drawing a bunch of flowers.
You’d better start with the stem and buds and draw the daisy flowers in the end. If you draw them step by step, first in pencil and then color them with crayons or paints, you are sure to get a realistic bunch of daisy flowers.
1. Sketch the flower’s contours.
It’s quite easy to draw a small circle for the daisy flower’s bud and trace the stem line with a pencil. Now you are sure to stick to proportions and locate petals strictly in a circle.
2. Draw the outer border of the petals.
Draw another circle of a larger diameter around the first one, the petals shouldn’t cross this boundary. Thus, they all will have the same length and width, which will make the drawing more attractive.
3. Draw the daisies’ petals.
The daisies’ petals are the only elements that require special attention and effort. However, given that you have both the inner and the outer boundaries, you won’t find it difficult to make them neat and even. The only condition, they should be of the same width.
4. How to draw a daisy. The final step.
In this step, we should draw the stem in details. Draw sharp leaves of arbitrary size and quantity. Draw several veins on the leaves and you can start coloring you picture with crayons or paints. You will need only to colors to draw a daisy – green and yellow.
5. Finished drawing.
Any flower looks better in a bunch. But if you do not want to draw a bunch of daisies, you can place a butterfly or a bee on the flower. This will animate your drawing.
How to Draw a Daisy in Watercolors
First, make a sketch in pencil. Now color it. Damp a broad brush in water and start coloring petals in white going from the edge to the center. Be free to turn the sheet of paper as you like while painting.
Move to the core: fill it with bright yellow paint, but leave some blank space at the bottom. Use a darker color to paint the bottom of the core.
Decorate the flower with tiny colored spots. To do this, take a toothpick or a used pen, damp it in paint and make random spots on the bottom of the core. Make some spots brown. Then draw white ones. Add freshness by the finishing touch – make few light green spots.
That’s it — you can enjoy your creation!
