How To Draw A Sunflower Drawing

Step: 1 Draw the large circle
Draw a large circle on the upper half of the page (or area where you want the flower to be). This circle will dictate the size of the flower, so make sure to leave some space underneath for the stem.
Draw your circle lighter than I have in the image above, this circle is only a guideline and will be erased away later (I drew it darker to make sure you could see it)
Step: 2 Draw a small circle
Now draw a circle within the larger one that is about half its size. If you want the sunflower petals to be small you can draw this circle bigger and if you want the petals to be big, draw this circle smaller.
Draw a circle that is only slightly smaller than the last one and draw it slightly towards the left of the circle. There will be a little more space on the right side than the left.
Make sure that none of these 3 circles are touching, use an eraser to fix any mistakes as you go. Laying down a good foundation will make this much easier.
Step: 3 Draw single flower
Now that we have the center of the flower and outer edges set up, we can begin drawing the petals.
The key to drawing flower petals is to draw them moving away from the center, think of sun rays coming off a sun. Our little sun buddy in the diagram is here to help us remember this point.
Draw a curved line from the second circle to the outer circle, try to copy the curve drawn in blue.Now lets add a line slightly below the other one and make them meet at the outer circle.
Notice how the first line curved up while this one hangs down. One of the key characteristics of Sunflowers is that they have pointed petals.
Most flowers have more rounded tips but make sure to capture these sharp corners when drawing sunflowers.
Step: 4 Draw sun flower‘s petals
Now that we have the first layer of petals we can start adding the ones underneath. Draw a triangular shape that connects at the two petals (check the blue line in the diagram).
Notice how we can see the edge line that goes to the core of the flower for these petals. Make sure to get this overlap.And remove the large circle boundary.
Step: 5 Draw sunflower stem
Let’s add a stem to the flower by drawing two vertical lines coming down from the center of the flower. Notice that the stem is just slightly to the right side of the flower because we drew the flower facing to the left.
This is why we drew the smallest circle slightly to the left, the slightly larger space between the two core circles gives us the indication that we see more of the right side of the core. I know that this sounds slightly complicated but you will start to understand what I mean as you draw more flowers.
Step: 6 Draw leafs of sunflower
Add a leaf to the stem, feel free to play with the shape of the leaf and see what you like. I drew my leaf fairly small and with some jagged edges to give it a naturalistic feel.
Fill in the tips on the left side of the flower like we did for the right side. Once you have that completed, start adding some lines to the tops of the petals close to the center of the flower (small lines in blue in the diagram).
Also start adding slight shading to the right side of the core.and add some colors to make our drawing look beautiful.
