Draw a Field of Poppies

A drawing of a Poppy Field, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

This tutorial shows students how they can honor the day by drawing a field of many bright red flowers. The shape is simplified for younger students so they can just concentrate on the little perspective lesson that is in play here. If they draw the biggest flowers first, in the bottom of the paper, the medium in the middle, and the smallest up near the horizon, they will have what looks like a very large field of flowers. Simple laws of perspective can add lots of space to any drawing.

What does the poppy flower symbolize? The poppy is a common symbol that has been used to represent everything from peace to death. When used on tombstones, poppies also represent eternal sleep. Students that learn how to draw lots of pretty red poppies out in a field, can honor this symbolism and make a lovely landscape drawing as well. It is a reminder that poppies were among the first plants to bloom in the devastated battlefields of northern France and Belgium.

Materials for a Poppy Field Drawing
