How to Draw a Sunflower: A Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

February 01, 2024 2 min read

Are you ready for some artistic fun? If you've just discovered your artistic side you're in the right place. Don't worry about perfection because our goal here is for you to enjoy, learn, and appreciate your artistic journey.

We're taking baby steps—breaking down the process of drawing a sunflower into manageable bits. So grab your sketchbook and pencil!

Gather your Supplies

Before we begin, make sure you have the following:
  • A sketchbook or paper
  • Pencils or Pen
  • Eraser
  • Sharpener

Step 1: Draw a big and small circles with wavy edges


To start, draw a large circle with wavy edges and a smaller version inside the bigger one. This will represent the outer part of your sunflower's centre. Don't stress too much about making it perfect - sunflowers are known for their natural imperfections!

Step 2: Create an oblong shape for the petal


Now, it's time to draw an oblong shape with wavy edges extending out from the larger circle. This will be the first of many petals on your sunflower.

Step 3: Add some details to the petal


Once you've got the shape of your petal down, let's give it a bit more detail. Draw thin lines – both upward and downward – along the length of the petal. These lines will add depth to your sunflower.

Step 4: Draw your next petals


Now, for a realistic touch, let's give our sunflower's first petal a friend. Draw a similar, curvy oblong shape that slightly overlaps behind the first petal. This technique will give your sunflower depth and an appealing multi-layered look.

Step 5: Repeat steps 2 - 4 to form the flower


Ready to complete your bloom? Continue the pattern we've created - drawing wavy, oblong petals with detail lines and layering them to create a full sunflower. Remember, the overlapping of petals is key in achieving that beautiful, lush sunflower appearance.
