Drawing Sunflowers

How to Create a Beautiful Sunflower Picture!

When drawing, it is easier to have a clearly defined picture in your mind prior to starting any project and the best drawing is always the one which has been well-thought out and any eventualities considered. If you can become inspired by the subject so much the better as any enthusiasm will encourage you to persevere even if the drawing may turn out to be a difficult one.

A simple sunflower can make for a wonderful picture, which can quite literally transform an office or home environment. If you are not confident with any paints to add that splurge of yellow, then consider using coloured pencils or watercolour pencils. The larger the drawing, the greater the impact, but it can be wise to make some very simple and quick sketches primarily so that your movement with the pencil is free-flowing and relaxed.

If the idea of drawing a sunflower is appealing, then follow these important points before starting your drawing:

-  Arrange some sunflowers in a vase so that they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It is important that you comprehend what makes the sunflowers so beautiful. Sometimes we view items around us without ever really noticing how incredible they are, training yourself to really view the world through different eyes will help you to become a greater artist.
-  Learn to become intuitive with your drawing. Let your arm be loose and relaxed as you begin to capture the likeness and mood that the flowers exude.
-  If it is easier, make some detailed sketches of the stem and leaves separately, so you can portray them accurately. Take time to observe them first and touch the leaves and stems, really feeling the textures.
-    As with any work of art, practice makes perfect and it is important not to become despondent if you make a mistake.

Gaining the correct technique is essential but couple that with an enthusiasm to learn and you will soon be creating wonderful likenesses of sun-flowers, if you can add colour to your picture and learn to work with coloured pencils or watercolour pencils, you can quite simply let the bold and bright yellows ooze from the paper. Your drawing will quite simply lift your spirits every time you see it.
