Draw a flower using the squares. It makes the job much easier.
The upper part is very large. Draw it using your compass or encircle a round object of the needed size.
There are big ligulate flowers on both sides. Start drawing the teardrop-shaped leaves.
They look like the sun.
Numerous flowers are placed in a circle.
It’s time to remove the auxiliary lines. The lower vertical line can be left and used to draw the stem of the flower. The sunflower is a tall plant with a hard stem.
The second layer of the petals
The sunflower’s petals grow on the head of several layers.
The head of the sunflower is transformed and become more voluminous.
The leaves of the large size are attached to the stem.
Their shape resembles the shape of the petals but they are different in size.
The edges are sharp. They are separated with the help of the veins in the middle, the leaves get the nutrients through them which come out from the soil to the root.
Draw another one on the other side.
We’ve got a perfect flower’s shape.
The whole middle part of the flower is covered with the small black seeds. That’s actually why the most people grow these plants on their summer cottages’ plots – to get the harvest in autumn, to get them fried and eat a very useful sunflower seeds then.
