#simplycreate a dandelion
For this tutorial you need:
- Simply sketchbook, A5 format
- Simply colouring pencils
Using the coloured pencil of your choice, draw lines that intersect to form a multitude of rays inside a circle to form the pompom.
Repeat the same operation with shorter radii this time to give the illusion of a full pompom.
Still with the same coloured pencil, add to each line a 6-pointed star forming 3 circles then complete the drawing with a rod starting from the centre of the pompom towards the end of the notebook page to finalise the dandelion.
Add more dandelions
Using the technique explained in this demonstration, make a small dandelion again to complete the drawing. Have fun adding a few achenes floating in the air like small, freedom-loving parachutes.
Results and inspiration
With a different coloured pencil, add several clouds in the background in the sky to give a airier effect to the drawing.
