Hi, my name is Eric. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a basket of carnations. First let's just start with the basket down here and we'll add more detail to this in a bit. Now let's bring it up a bit higher. Now let's start with the carnations here. Those just look like big rounded plumes, another one here, more here and there's going to be one in there. Now let's add texture by just keeping going around the carnations, around and around until you get to the center and let's start in the middle with this one and work our way out. Then going around let's try this one here, so in the center in this one here so the center in this one also, work their way around. Let's try some more distinct lines in between these and then let's add to this basket, straighten this out. I don't like this line here add this to the basket and let's draw these lines here, some horizontal lines and now let's round that out from this, add to that and then draw the horizontal lines to the basket and then with the basket we're going to want to alternate every other one, put some texture in here, put this one under, lines in here, let's draw another plume over here, and add that there. And that is how you draw carnations in a basket.
