7. Erase a small portion of the stem, and extend a pair of curved lines from each opening. On one side, the lines should connect to the first flower.

On the other, use a series of lines to draw a half-circle shape that is jagged on one side. This is the base of a flower bud. Use long curved lines to enclose petals emerging from this sepal.

8. Finish drawing the bud’s petals, extending curved lines and doubling them back on themselves. Then, draw a few small leaves along the stem.

First, extend a pair of lines from the stem and allow them to meet at a sharp point. Extend a line from the point to form the leaf vein, and use a curved line to enclose the leaf around it.
