Step 1: Draw a small circle.
Step 2: Draw another Big circle
Step 3: Now! it’s time to draw petals.
For drawing petals, you have to draw an elongated heart like structure.

Repeat the above step(Step 3) until every space in the circle fully covered.
Now Move to the stem below! Draw a curve line for the stem…and a leaf.
Step 5: Draw more leaves.
Stem: Draw another curve parallel line to provide width and cross-section of the stem and also draw the second leaf.

Rough Sunflower sketch is almost created. Now it’s time to color our sunflower.
Step 6: Start coloring
Now the question is have you see the sunflower? what is the color of the sunflower?
yeah! you may be seen the sunflower. its petals are yellow and dark brownish in the center.
So in the center of the sunflower, I’m coloring it dark brown somewhat reddish.
Step 7: Start coloring petals
Petals are yellow, hence I colored it yellow.
Step 8: Start coloring stem and leaves
As you know the stem and leaves of the plant are green. Isn’t it?
So, color it green.
And also outline the whole flower using a black ball pen. I use a black ball pen because it is dark.
Almost the coloring part is ready.
Step 9: Give it a realistic look
It’s time to give it a 3D look. In order to do that, use 6H or 4H darker pencil and try to shade in the base of the petal and use cotton or your finger to smudge it.
What is smudging?
