How to draw a sunflower?

Let’s start drawing this sunflower!


Draw a neat and clean circle in the center of the page. This will form the core of the sunflower.


Draw another smaller sized circle inside the main circle.


Now it is the turn to draw the petals of the sunflower. To trace the petal, first draw two parallel lines and then a curve uniting the ends of the parallel lines.  First, Draw two petals on the front and back of the circle.


Draw two more petals at the sides of the sunflower.


Draw the petals in between the already drawn leaves. In this way, leaves are drawn all around the circle.


We need to draw the stem, of course! Draw two closely parallel lines at the bottom leaf of the sunflower. This will represent the stem of the sunflower.


Draw two leaves on the two sides of the stem. For this leaf, trace two curved lines and unite them at the corner. 


Color the sunflower. Of course, bright yellow petals with the brown stem and green leaves.

Yes! The cute and lovely drawing of the sunflower is completed.
