Some people may refer to this flower species as being one of the most beautiful flowers in the world, and there are some folks that it's a flower that is very plain, and round. I myself think this flower is very pretty, but not one of the prettiest I've seen. Today I will show you "how to draw a dahlia flower", step by step. I enjoyed making this flower because it was a bit of a challenge to make the petals so uniform the way they are. They all have to be pretty consistent in size and shape, so it may be a challenge for some of you too. Dahlias come in many different colors including red, blue, pink, and the very pure white. I'm sure there is other colors in that list, but I wasn't about to go though the many different dahlia shades. Have fun with the tut folks.
