In this lesson, I show you how to draw poppies. I hope that the drawing process will give you pleasure, and you will acquire useful skills.
Any novice artist wants to learn how to draw flowers and in this lesson I will show you in detail how to draw poppies. These are very beautiful flowers, in which there are thin, delicate petals of bright red color.
Poppies bloom in early spring and delight us with their beauty. Unfortunately, poppy bloom does not last long, only a few days, then the petals fall off and a fruit in the form of a round box forms in the middle of the flower.
This lesson will use your ability to draw smooth, rounded lines to draw the outline of each petal. The next step is to draw wavy lines to detail the edges of the petals.
First use thin lines, then make a clear outline. Take your time during the lesson and try to draw the same lines as shown in the instructions.
