Drawing the Daisy : How to Draw Daisies with Easy Step by Step Lessons
Daisy Drawing Tutorial 1 : Step 1
First lightly sketch out a slanted oval. In the center draw a sideways letter ‘C’ shape. In the center of the ‘C’ draw a slightly curved line coming out of it.
Now draw 4 of the flower’s petals. 3 of the petals look like normal petals, but one of them (because of the way that we are looking at it) looks like a letter ‘v’ at the bottom and an upside down letter ‘u’ at the top. Trying to think of shapes as letters and numbers makes drawing much easier.
Now around the flower make sideways letter ‘V’s.
Now erase the oval and then draw the rest of the flower petals that you have just started drawing (when you were drawing the ‘v’s). Now it looks like a daisy.

Now draw the Daisy’s leaf and if you want to you can put more detail into the flower by drawing hatch lines (for shadowing).
Daisy Lesson #2
Firstly, draw an oval and then a much smaller oval in the center of the first oval. Then draw a line down from the center (as seen above).
Now draw 4 petals in a cross like fashion as seen above (a petal is just 2 inwards curved lines).
Now draw a ‘C’ like shape in the center of the flower. Then draw ‘m’ like shapes around the entire flower.
Now erase the outer oval shape since you don’t need it any more. Then finish drawing the petals that you started when drawing the ‘m’ like shapes by drawing 2 inwards curved lines for each petal.
Step 5 – Finished Drawing Tutorial of Daisy #2
Now draw the Daisy’s leaf and if you want to you can put more detail into the flower by drawing hatch lines (for shadowing) and dots in the center of the flower.
