How to Draw Dandelions Step by Step
Kids or grown ups alike can follow these simple steps with this Dandelion Drawing guide! I would recommend creating your drawing with a pencil, as you can erase if you have any mistakes. But you can always draw over it with an ink Pen or marker when you are done, to define it some more. Have fun creating some of these charming wildflowers!
Dandelion Drawing Step 1
Step 1: Let’s draw the head of the flower. Draw a series of small “V” shapes in a cluster that is shaped a bit like an oval.
Step 2: Next add in 2 curved lines at the base of the bloom.
Step 3: Now you’ll sketch in some lines inside of those 2 curves and some little narrow leaves pointing downward as shown above.
Step 4: Sketch in some narrow curved leaf shapes to use as guidelines. Add in a stem between the flower and leaves. Within the leaf guidelines you can start to draw in some jagged looking leaves.
Step 5: Finish creating the jagged leaves and draw a center line on each of them. You can erase the guidelines on the leaves. Now you have a lovely simple Dandelion Illustration!
The only thing left to do now is to color in your pretty Flowers! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! I colored mine in with Green Leaves and Yellow Flowers, but you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You get to decide!
