Ten-Step Drawing: Flowers – Pansy
1 Start with a rough circle guideline.
2 Add a small circle in the center of the circle.
3 Draw the bottom petal, starting from the small circle and
moving out to the bottom-left edge of the circle.
4 Add the petal on the right.
5 Add the petal on the left.
6 Draw the top two overlapping petals.
7 Add detail to the center of the flower and erase the guide.
8 Draw a jagged-edge guideline for the color detail on the petals.
9 Add the leaves and stem.
10 Use pale blues and purples to create the characteristic markings
on the petals, and erase the jagged guideline. Keep the yellows separate; as overlaying the colors will turn them muddy. The colors on the petals of a pansy will help you practice blending different colors, such as the blues, purples, and yellows shown here.
