Hey there I'm Bill Connolly your artist and cartoonist extraordinaire with how to draw a sunflower using a pen and water color. You can start off with the pen line if you want to and I am just going to do half of it or you can start off with this. You can start off with a color, whatever is your preference there and start off and just paint in the different petals, brilliant water color, add a little water if it gets to be too tacky there because what you can do if you paint it first you can cover up your mistakes with the pen. I will go a little farther here and kind of do a cross section and do half of a sunflower then I am just going to go all the way around and I'm going to move to the middle and it is just slightly darker. I am going to hopefully make it to that circle there and I probably should get a little bit darker with that but it is going to go here and then these will eventually go all the way around and then you'll have your stem coming down. You can make a whole field full of sunflowers. It is a lot of fun too with water color. You can get the light values and really have a good time with it. Keep practicing and that is how to draw a sunflower with ink and water colors. I'm Bill Connolly, your artist and cartoonist extraordinaire. Thanks for watching.
