Hi, I'm Al Krakosky , and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a chrysanthemum. I'm going to start in the center here, then you draw very, very small petals, all really close together. You wouldn't see a whole lot of detail in here, because they're very small and very close. And the further you get out, the larger your petals will start being. And for your petal shape, you want to do a curved line, come to a point on the top, curve down. So, there is your petal. So, you want to do that throughout, getting larger, the further you go out. And maybe do about, between five and eight rows of petals. When you're doing your rows, the next row you do, you want your petals to be between the two petals below it, in the center. And these end up kind of looking like, like a firework going off. So, we're going to do this row, and one more row after this. And this is no yellow, but you can do any color. We're going to add some, some orange and pink in there, in a second. All the way around for our last row. And then, we'll add some pink in the center there, add a little bit of orange in some of these petals, just give it some more color. And lastly, we will add a stem curving down and two leaves coming off, of here, and the grass at the bottom. And that is how you draw a chrysanthemum. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
