How to Draw Pansies Flowers in a Pot. Free Worksheet.

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting it and sending to your printer or saving to your device for printing later.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Do not get discouraged if your sketch doesn't turn out like you want it to. Drawing takes practice. I have a lot of projects so come back every day and print another free worksheet and sketch it, soon you will be drawing pictures you will be proud of.

INTRODUCTION
There are many types of pansies I have tried to create a project that can be adjusted to whichever type you want to sketch.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE WORKSHEET
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

PROJECT NOTES YOU MAY PRINT

BEGINNING
Start with three large circles, you can do more or less as you want. Just get them in place in the center of your picture, have them overlap a little to be interesting. In the middle, draw three tiny circles close together.

DEVELOPMENT
The flower has five petals. Start with the bottom one, it is shaped like a bushy beard on an old man or a triangle that is roundish. Next, draw the ones on each side they are like elephant ears. Last draw the two on the top, the top left is first and the top right is last it is behind everything.

LEAVES
The leaves are like triangles with bumpy sides. Start with a line down the middle and then draw the sides. Draw them behind the flowers.

DETAILS
The flower petals have jagged edges. There are veins or wrinkles that go through the petals. They have a dark spot on the lower three petals, use shading technique to show this. Do not worry about making it perfect it is the randomness that makes the flower interesting.

The pot is just two lines going down to a level point and a curving line that connects them. Shadow around the sides and below the flowers.
