Today we will draw may-lily.
Traditionally I would like to tell you a little about these flowers. I could start with useful properties but I already worry about your health after you have learnt about edible dandelion and healing properties of lilac. So better we will do without useful recipes. But still I’ve got something for you.
Let me tell you some words about how poisonous lilies of the valley are.
- Outwardly this flower seems to be so tender. But appearance is deceitful sometimes. The flower itself, its stem and root contain poison.
- That’s why the water where you keep the flowers gets poisonous too. Don’t drink it!
- Birds can eat the fruits of lilies and nothing will happen to them. But for a man it is poison.
- Wolves, foxes and deer also love to eat these flowers, but not hares. They can get poisoned.
- And their wonderful scent can kill lilac.
- Rural livestock will kick the bucket if they eat them.
And now we shall start to draw this beautiful flower.
How to draw lilies of the valley step by step
Step 1. In the center of the sheet we sketch the flowers. They all come out of the same point and go upwards. We draw small circles above the root. We sketch a butterfly on one of them.
Step 2. We can see 2 stems coming out of the lower part of the flower and the beads – the flowers – are hanging on thin stems. We draw triangular leaves. We give shape to our butterfly.
Step 3. Now we make our leaves roundish. We add small leaves at the root. Then show the central points in every circle.
Step 4. And now we come up to the most interesting part. We will depict those lovely little white flowers. They are round on the top and the lower part is wavy. We do the same with every bead. Then we show the leaves of the lower flowers and outline our butterfly.
Step 5. We start coloring our drawing. We hatch the flowers, leaves and butterfly.
Step 6. We make our picture more and more colorful and bright. We will need green, violet and yellow pencils for that.
