Hey, what's up? Chris in the house and today we're going to be learning how to draw lily petals. Let's get to it. Now the thing that you'll notice as I'm drawing it and we're going to start with this petal here is it's similar to a banana being peeled. You'll see what I mean. So we're going to draw that point, that curve coming back then we're going to bring that back this way and then this one is going to come out and go back in. Then we're going to go over that line again and he next petal will come out and it will go that way, come back in and we'll draw that line going down there to meet that. Now, draw this line here, draw this line here and as they come in it kind of closes. So now the next petal will come out and that meets, that closes too. Now, we have another petal, it will come out and we'll bring this line right back down and bring this line back up and finally, we'll do this petal and it's curved at an angle so you can't see the point as it goes back down. But believe me it's there and then here's the center of the lily so we'll draw this little stems coming out and we'll paint the tips of those green. We'll take the white and we'll just fill this in to give it some depth and dimension. See I draw these lines at this angle to show you which way the petals are bending see what I mean? And there you are, last but not least we have to give it a stem so right from here we'll come down and we'll give it the stem, fill that in and there you have it. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a lily petal.
