Dahlia Painting

How to Sketch a Dahlia Flower
Step 1. Quickly sketch a rough oval to outline main flower petals, then draw a smaller shape in the center for stigma and anther. Now start working down the flower stem and create very light sketches of leaves. Learning how to draw a flower can at times be a matter of trial and error, so keep your first few drawing lines faint, especially if you use graphite pencil, to avoid any unnecessary erasing or cleaning up at the end.
Step 2.  Begin to get into details of flower petals. As you see, they look pretty much like the shapes of your leaves, but smooth and soft without rough edges

How to Color a Dahlia Flower
Step 3. Decide on your choice of colors and quickly fill petals, flower center, stem and leaves. To get soft romantic flowers, use light pink in combination with yellow – orange for the main flower, and dark green for stem and leaves.
Step 4. Now get directly into shading this flower with colors. Commence by first picking up the darkest areas first so you can easily see the big picture at a glance, then work your way from the center to outer edges of flower petals. This is how to paint a flower the proper and methodical way.
Step 5. Now do the same thing to green leaves and the flower stem. To easily make your flower painting look realistic, all you have to do is observe how dark and light areas are distributed in different parts of the flower. In this scenario, leaves tend to be darker at the base where it is close to petiole.
Step 6. Go back to painting flower petals. At this stage our beautiful flower has already had decent shape and colors, but it needs further definition. To do so, use pink paint (or whatever color you chose) to sketch petal texture, and remember to contour (follow the petal’s shape) to better depict its three dimensional quality.
Step 7. Grab another slightly different color paint – let’s say slightly more reddish tone and keep on sketching the texture of each petal. You can also work a little bit on the center area of flower as well.
Step 8. Grab yet another color – this time more purple in it and keep shading the tip of each petal.
