Description: Well hello again my fine, friendly artist mates, and welcome back to another fun fill lesson. Today I will start the day by drawing some pretty flowers. As some of you may or may not have noticed, I now have a flowers category because I find myself drawing a flower or two on an occasional basis. There will be a total of three different sweet smelling plants that you will get lessons on. To start, let me show you “how to draw daffodils, step by step”. Daffodils are one of the prettier flowers that are admired and loved by both men and women. How many species of daffodils are there? Well, how about between forty and two hundred different types of breeds. These flowers are very distinct looking, making them beautiful blooms. The contrast in colors is unique as well. For yellow colored daffodils, the inner “trumpet” shaped horns, is a darker yellow to a point to where it's almost orange. The inner structure sits against star shaped pedals, and if you try and count how many pedals there is to a background, you will almost always come up with a number of six. Remember when I said that there is over two hundred different daffodil species? Well with these different types of Narcissus, comes all sorts of colors. You can find daffodils in shades of yellow, yellow and white, yellow and orange, white and orange, pink, and even a pretty lime green. This tutorial will not give you a lesson on one daffodil, you will actually learn “how to draw daffodils, step by step” meaning two. Some florists sell a wide variety of different colored daffodils, and if they don't carry them, your florist can often order them for you. Especially if your giving this particular flower as a gift. Remember, if you give the gift of a daffodil, you are sending someone a symbolizing form of friendship, because that is what this flower represents. I hope you guys have fun with this lesson. When you're done, you can color in your flowers to be any species of daffodil you like. Until next time peeps.
