The four leaf clover is considered lucky and is a reminder of St. Patrick, Ireland, good luck, and the christian cross. It is not hard to draw a nice four leaf clover or even a small field of them. Try this lesson and decorate greeting cards posters and reports with them.

Start with a loose drawing of a square standing at an angle on one of its corners. The square does not need to be perfect, it is like a map or guideline. Divide the square into triangles by drawing lines through the square; these lines should intersect at the middle and themselves be like long letter "V" at the corners, It may help at this point to erase the corners to maintain focus. 

Round off the corners of the four triangles and give the outside of each a slight heart shape. A true four leafed clover will have one leaf, the fourth, to be smaller than the other three, so if you mess up and they are not even or perfect in size don't worry- you may have just made it more realistic! Erase any extra lines and color with pencil or marker. 

Add the stem and the grassy leaves with some sweeping straight lines.

Illustration for How To Draw A Four Leaf Clover

My Illustration above was drawn using the lesson plan described at the top. Here I went over the drawings of the 4 leaf clovers with a green sharpie and then colored the illustration with yellow and green. I used layers of colored pencil to give interest. The shadows were done with red to darken the green. The highlights were done with yellow.
