How to Draw a Marigold in 5 Steps


1. Outline

­

Show the position of the flowers by lightly sketching three circles and an incomplete circle behind one of them. Lightly sketch several stems. Sketch one of the stems so that it bulges out as it meets the circle.

Draw long, pointed leaves on the stems so that pairs of leaves are evenly arranged along the stems. At the top of the drawing, sketch a long stem with an oval-shaped bud at its end.
