BEGINNINGS
Draw lightly so you can erase later. Draw a large circle just a little above and to the side of the center of your paper. Draw a small circle in the center of the large circle as a reference point. Use two lines for the stem.

The petals of the Hibiscus flower is like a pinwheel where each petal overlaps the one on the right. There are five petals draw them as sweeping half circles starting from the center going out to the edge. Draw two lines for the stamen, (the part that sticks out of the center). Draw triangles to get the placement of the leaves behind the flower and on the stem.

DEVELOP FORM
The petals have crinkly edges so go over the petals and give some crinkles.The leaves have some jagged edges, so go over them and give the jagged edges.

There are vanes in the leaves. One goes down the middle draw it as a thick line and then there are some to go out to the edges, draw them as lighter lines.

SHADING
The shading is the important part and so take your time with it. The leaves are all darker than the flower. The dark on the leaves are darkest nearest the flower and more light near the edges.

The flower is darkest in the center and there is a shadow under the overlapping right edge where each overlaps the other.

The stem is darker on one side.
