Daisies are beautiful and simple flowers to draw. With the step-by-step guide below, you can create a black-and-white or colorful daisy drawing in minutes.
We will draw a complete daisy flower with a stem, leaves, and the flower itself. Before you start sketching, make sure that the finished drawing will fit on the paper. We start at the top but the stem is long and will need a lot of space.

In the drawing tutorial below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Daisy
We will first draw the center of the flower. Don't forget to leave enough space for the flower's petals around the center and the stem below it.
Sketch a long wavy line for the stem. Draw four lines inside the circle to divide it into eight equal parts.
Draw eight elongated ovals for the petals. Each petal starts from where we draw the lines dividing the circle.
Add another ring of petals. These are under the first petals and will be partially hidden.
Erase the overlapping lines drawn in the previous step.
Next, we will outline the leaves. Draw a straight, tilted line across the stem. At the ends, add shorter lines that point downwards at an angle. Draw ovals around the lines.
Erase the inner lines from the leaves and the center of the flower.
Sketch irregular, wavy lines around the leaf shapes to make it look more natural. Also, draw a lot of tiny, curvy lines around the center of the flower.
Erase the oval shapes from the leaves. Only the wavy lines should be left.
Make the stem thicker by drawing another line parallel to it. Add some details to the center of the flower; draw a crescent shape in the middle and surround it with a lot of small dots.
You can add a few more details to the flower before coloring it. Add small U-shapes inside the tops of the petals and draw a couple more petals that peak out a little from behind the other petals.
