how to draw a Peony step-by-step

Begin by drawing a small circle. This will form the flower's center.

Draw curved lines from the circle to create filaments, then curve them back to make anthers.

Curved lines create five petals around the anthers in an irregular shape.

Curved lines extended from the petals in various sizes, forming an irregular shape.

Continue to sketch petals, using a curved line to enclose each. The flower should now have two to three layers of petals.

Round out the flower with additional petals, filling in any bare spots. Use a curved line to enclose each petal.

Draw a pair of long, curving lines downward from the flower and connect them with shorter lines to form a leaf.

Draw a leaf with short lines from the stem, adding curved lines for the leaf and vein.

Enhance your flower by drawing extended diagonal and curved lines for texture and depth.
