Of course, this tutorial on how to draw a four-leaf clover can be used to draw a three-leaf version of the clover. To do this, you will need to depict this plant exactly as shown in the steps below, but without the fourth leaf.

This herb has a very symmetrical appearance, and in order not to be mistaken in proportion and symmetry, I advise you to look at your drawing in the mirror from time to time.

Looking in the mirror at the sketch, you can find all the mistakes in time and correct them. You can also distance the drawing from yourself from time to time. It will also help you find any mistakes you have made.

So, enough theory. It’s time to start practicing!
