How to Draw a Daisy

how to draw daisy

As you navigate through the sea of vibrant blooms, one delicate flower captures your attention – a daisy. This symbol of purity is known for its unique and recognizable form, making it an ideal choice for someone who’s looking for elegant blooms that are not too complicated to sketch.

In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through a simple process to draw a daisy. Not only is it about detailed steps to sketch each of the bloom’s parts, but it also shows you a quick way to make it vibrant with colors.

But first, mark that observing and understanding clearly about daisies is the key to a fascinating piece of art. Could you imagine that its yellow center (also called the disc florets) is a cluster of small florets? Surprise!! Plus, notice that daisies have basal leaves, which means that the leaves grow directly from the base of the plant.

Once you’ve been equipped with basic tips, it’s time to delve into the world of drawing!

Step 1: Let’s begin with the daisy head. Firstly, draw a small circle at the top part of your canvas. This will serve as the base for the daisy’s central disc.

Step 2: This is for displaying the disc florets. Draw slightly curved lines within this circle that run diagonally (and nearly parallel). Try to make the two outer lines lean a bit to the circle line to add dimension.

Step 3: Keep drawing slightly curved lines, but in the opposite direction to create the grid look.

Step 4: The central disc is done. Now move to the ray florets. Coming off the circle, sketch the first petal as shown in the image.

Step 5: Keep drawing the rest of the petals surrounding the disc.

Step 6: Drawing the stem is simple. It’s a combination of two slightly curved lines that extend downward from the head.

Step 7: As mentioned, daisy leaves grow directly from the stem. So, on its right side, sketch the first leaf. Begin with a single curved line extending outward (representing the leaf’s central vein), then draw two sides of the leaf (refer to our image below).

Step 8: Sketch another leaf on the other stem, symmetrical to the first one.

Step 9: Well, you’ve already mastered the final lines. Now is the time to erase unnecessary strokes to get the best sketch before stepping into the world of colors.

Step 10: Here, begin with the disc florets first. Carefully fill it with a base of bright yellow. To make it more realistic, color a small part of it green.

Next, assume that the light direction is from the top left of your canvas. Let’s shade the parts that catch less light with darker hues of yellow.

Step 11: If you want to color the petals as natural-looking as possible, note that their white color will be affected by light and colors nearby (such as from the yellow disc or green leaves). Thus, after using a layer of white, color the area surrounding the disc with light yellow. Some other parts will be embellished with pastels.

Step 12: Finally, let green take power regarding the stem and leaves. As usual, color a green base first and apply shading and highlighting techniques later (using the same hue yet different values and saturation)

Conclusion

It goes without saying that this tutorial provides an opportunity to appreciate the intricate details of a daisy, from its symmetrical form and vibrant yellow disc florets to the elegant white petals that surround it.

But don’t stop at this beauty while you can make it shine and bright with different sides of view and in diverse backgrounds.

Instead of drawing them straight on, try making them from various viewpoints (such as from a side angle). You can also create a bouquet or a field of daisies, exploring variations in size, position, and arrangement. How about incorporating a background? A simple sky, a scenic landscape, or an abstract pattern seems perfect.

Good luck with your choice!
