Flowers can brighten up anyone’s day just by seeing them. We all wanted to grow flowers in our backyard but unfortunately, gardening is simply not for everyone.
Why not learn how to draw a flower so you can have a blossoming flower right at your fingertips? A flower drawing can be a great decoration to your home and you don’t have to actually take care of it.
To help you with this dilemma, we have curated a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a daisy, summarized and divided into 9 easy and simple steps.
A daisy, a small grassland plant, is a common European species of the family Asteraceae. Its flower actually consists of two different blooms in one plant; the center florets and the petals itself.
With the help of this comprehensive guide, drawing a daisy is made easier and more fun!
Each step in this drawing tutorial is accompanied with elaborate illustrations that serve as your visual guide as you follow the instructions one by one.
The best part? All you need is pen and paper to draw a blooming daisy!
Have fun putting your imagination into paper!
How to Draw a Daisy – Let’s get started!
On the upper portion of your paper, draw a perfect circle to outline the disk in the very middle of the daisy.
Feel free to use a compass if you need help in drawing a perfect circle. A compass is a drawing tool that enables you to draw an even and proportional circle quickly and easily.
In order to make sure that the flower will be drawn in the middle, draw an intersecting horizontal and vertical line across your paper. The vertical line above the horizontal line is where you should draw the circle.
Starting in the upper part of your paper gives you sufficient space to draw the entire flower along with its parts, including the stem and the leaves.
Step 2 – Draw the First Three Petals of the Daisy
Draw three long, narrow oval shapes on the upper left side of the circle shape we drew previously.
Keep in mind that the bottom endpoint part of the petals shouldn’t be visible as they are directly connected to the disk in the middle of the daisy.
Step 3 – Then, Draw Another Three Petals
Repeat the previous step and draw another three petals right beside the ones we drew previously.
Make sure that the petals are uniformed and evenly shaped.
Step 4 – Complete All the Petals of the Daisy
Keep repeating the previous step and drawing petals surrounding the disk until all the ten petals of your daisy is completed.
Now, watch as your daisy fully blooms! Look how beautiful it is!
Step 5 – Afterwards, Add a Stem Below the Daisy
Now that we have successfully drawn the flower, it’s time to draw the stem.
Right underneath the flower we drew in the previous step, draw two parallel vertical lines to create the stem. The lines should be long, extending all the way down to the bottom of your paper.
You can use a ruler to help you draw straight lines quickly and easily. Using this drawing tool will help ensure that your stem is upright and symmetrical.
Step 6 – Draw a Leaf Attached to the Stem
Draw a single leaf on the left side of the stem.
The leaf can be created by simply drawing two connected curved lines. Both end points of the leaf should be pointed.
Step 7 – Next, Draw Another Leaf on the Stem
Repeat the previous step on the opposite side of the stem.
After completing this step, you should now have two full leaves attached to the stem!
Step 8 – Add Patterns on All the Flower Petals
In order to make flowers appear realistic, drawing patterns on the surface of the petals is essential to it look textured.
Creating the patterns on a daisy’s petals is plain and easy. Simply draw a short straight line on the bottom part of each petal.
Step 9 – Draw a Cute Face in the Middle of the Daisy
Give your daisy a happy facial expression by drawing two small circles for the eyes and an upward curved line for the smile within the disk.
Don’t forget to shade the eyes and leave out a tiny circle inside of it to make its eyes appeal like it’s gleaming—so adorable!
After finishing this step, your daisy drawing should now be finally complete. Now, all it’s missing is a set of colors to make it look vibrant and colorful!
Finally, here is the most enjoyable part—choosing the colors and coloring your drawing! This is the part where you can showcase your artistic skills and your ability to mix and match various colors!
Daisies exist in a wide range of varieties with different color combinations, with white and yellow, yellow and black, and sky blue and yellow being the most common.
This gives you a lot of color options to choose from when coloring your daisy.
Have fun picking the colors and coloring your daisy!
Bonus: Try Out Some Different Art Styles For This Daisy
We love the simple look of this beautiful daisy drawing. We intentionally wanted to create a simplified cartoony look for the flower to capture a daisy’s happy, breezy feeling.
Despite this, you may want to experiment with different interpretations of this daisy drawing. One of the ways you could do this would be by changing the art style to a different one.
This could be done in place of the daisy drawing in this guide, or you could make some companion pieces to contrast it. One style you could try would be to make the daisy more realistic.
You could use a real daisy as a reference or look up some pictures of real daisies. Then, simply go through the guide again in order to change the required details to make it more realistic.
This would consist of details such as the shapes of the petals and some of the more minor texture details. You would also probably want to remove the smiling face, as cute as it looks.
Going in a more realistic direction isn’t the only way to go about it, however. You could go in an even more stylized direction instead and go for something more abstract.
Using paint would make this easy to do, as you can be really expressive with brush strokes as you express your feelings. If you have too many ideas for how to interpret this daisy drawing, then it could be fun to make a series out of these.
Each picture could be placed next to one another so that anyone who looks at them can see all of the ways you approached it and how they differ from one another.
