How to draw a chrysanthemum:
Step by step instructions how to draw a chrysanthemum
Total Time: 25 minutes
With your pencil, start by drawing two circles that look like a donut!
Add petals outside of each circle. These petals should look like tall elongated upside-down U shapes. Wiggle your pencil and vary the shapes of all of your petals. This flower has a ton of petals and try to make each petal unique.
Draw another layer of petals with your pencil overlapping the first layer of petals.
Continue in the same manner adding more and more overlapping petals with your pencil. Vary the angle, size, and length of each petal as you draw them.
Using a fine tip black pen, start from the center and work outwards to trace over the pencil sketch.
Keep tracing your pencil lines till the flower is complete. Add a few leaves to finish the sketch.
Optional, add a pop of color to your flower by watercoloring on top. I like using this oil-based black pen for drawing so that it will not bleed when I watercolor on top.
So there you have it! Simple 5 steps to draw a chrysanthemum or spider mum in your sketchbook.
