STEP 1. Start with a circle for the flowers shape, and then add another smaller shape in the center. You will then draw six lines for each petal.   STEP 2. Now sketch out all shapes of each petal that you see here, and notice how the edges are far from being straight lined. They should be wavy, and full of life.   STEP 3. Continue to draw the remainder of the petals, and then when you are done, begin sketching out the large bed of leaves that the flower or bloom seems to rest on. Be sure the leaf edges are serrated looking, and you also add the ribs for definition, and detail. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up the drawing, and to prepare it for color.   STEP 4. Now draw in the pistils in the center, and that's it, you are done.   STEP 5. This is how the poinsettia should come out looking like when you are done. Now all you have to do is color it in. Great job people!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
