Step 4. Draw the shapes of the daffodil's petals.

Draw the triangular forms that extend the circles that outlined the petals of the daffodil. The extension of the circles into triangular forms will later transform into beautiful petals.

Step 5. Detail the daffodils' petals.

In this step, we start detailing the daffodil drawing with curved lines for the calyx and petals. The curved shape of the calyx will make the drawing realistic. The curved lines going from the inside of the daffodil will add volume to the drawing.

Step 6. Adding stem, leaves, and shade to the daffodil drawing.

In the last step of the drawing, carefully remove the unnecessary lines. Adding hatches and lines inside and outside the calyx that vary in size and curve will help add volume. As the last step, you can add the stem and leaves. Long, soft lines going along the leaves will help you reproduce light grooves on the leaves.
