Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.
The poppy is a cup shaped flower with four petals. Start by drawing two ovals on the paper, one will be slightly behind the other. Mark the center in the middle of each.
Begin to define the four petals by dividing the circles into sections, use sweeping "U" shaped curving lines, do not worry about being even. One petal on top looks like a Chinese fan. The petals on the sides look like curved lines. The petal on the bottom looks like a ballerina's dress.
The edges of the petals are wavy. In the middle are little fingers that come up draw them at the center circle.
The stems are not straight. The leaves look like groups of feathers pointing up.
