How to Draw a Sunflower

Learn how to draw a sunflower with this easy step by step tutorial. Their bright yellow colors always look amazing against a bright blue sky.

Learning how to draw a flower doesn’t mean that you have to have just one centered in the middle of the paper, all by its lonesome. That doesn’t make for a very exciting composition.

Take a clue from Van Gogh, who made many lovely arrangements for his famous sunflower paintings. Instead of arranging them in a vase though, encourage students to make their own balanced layout with a simple large, medium and small one. Drawing flowers that peek in from the sides will help create some interesting layouts.



Time needed: 30 minutes.
