I hope you guys liked the first three tutorials that I submitted earlier today. For my fourth lesson I thought I would do something fun, easy and pretty. I will show you "how to draw a carnation", step by step. Now a carnation is a very versatile and old flower that has been around for two thousand years. It is a very durable and strongly scented flower which is why it is so popular. You will commonly see an abundance of carnations during certain holidays like Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, and the more popular St. Patrick’s Day. During Valentine’s Day the carnation is colored pink and red. During Mother’s they are dyed pink, red, yellow and even purple. Easter has a variety of pastel looking colors from green to yellow as well as blue and purple. One of the most common colored carnations is a darker shade of green to represent the Irish holiday St. Patrick’s Day. I am submitting this tutorial to show some love for St. Patty’s day and because of that I added a series of clovers in the background. The lesson is easy to learn because I laid the steps out so they are easy to follow and read. When you learn how to draw this flower you will have the ability to color it in accordance with any holiday you wish. But in the mean time have fun learning how to draw a carnation flower step by step. I will be back in a minute so stay tuned kiddies, I shall return.
