Cornflower is an annual flowering plant that is native to Europe. In the past, it actually grew as a weed in cornfields. Maybe that is where it got its name. They can grow up to 16-35 inches tall, with gray-green branched stems.

The flowers are most commonly an intense blue color, produced in flowerheads, with a ring of a few large, spreading ray florets surrounding a central cluster of disc florets and that it flowers all summer. Let us try to create our own cornflower by following these few simple steps. Let’s go!

So, to start your Cornflower drawing, simply follow these 9 easy steps!



Step 1: Create a Pawn Shape

Have you ever seen chess pieces? If yes, let us start our Cornflower drawing by creating a pawn shape for the flower. This will serve as your guide and the basis for all the details of your cornflower drawing.

Step 2: Draw a Crown

Next, make a crown on the head of the pawn shape you’ve drawn earlier. This should look like an egg-like shape with the pawn in the middle bottom part of the shape.

Step 3: Remove Extra Lines

The next thing that we will do is to erase the excess line for it to look like a disc on the top of the head.

Step 4: Add a Zigzag Design
