Poppy is a flowering plant. These flowers are symbolic and used to remember the Armistice Day of World War 1, now known as Remembrance Day. Celebrated for those who died in all wars. It’s good to know that this flower has a special mark.

The flower color of poppy species includes white, pink, yellow, orange, red, and blue. Some have dark center markings. Did you know that before blooming, the petals are crumpled in the bud, and as blooming finishes, the petals often lie flat before falling away.

First, we create a circle. This will serve as the foundation of your Poppy drawing and will also be the guide for all the details later.

Step 2: Add Inner Circles

Drawing inner circle for the poppy.

Inside the circle we’ve made earlier, do another 2 small circles in the center. Make sure that the inner circles are inside one another just like our sample above.

Draw the petal of the poppy.

With the guide of the bigger circle we have created, let us design 2 petal shapes inside. Creating a flat-leaf look alike.

Step 4: Draw Inner Petals

Remove extra detail and add more petal.

Now, imagine putting a shell inside those big petals we’ve made. Making the center circle our pearl. This time, add two inner petals using the inner circles as our guide.

Step 5: Fold the Inner Petal

Draw the inner petal.

Let us add a tiny detail on the right side of that shell we’ve made, making it look like our petal is a little folded.

Step 6: Draw the Stem
