Step 1: Well firstly start off with making small ball, joined together forming a bigger ball.
Step 2: Make five to six lines with a free hand starting from the bunch of balls, extending outwards. These will form the petals later.
Step 3: Now on every branch or line drawn, make arrows that will give it a texture like a leaf.
Step 4: Once done, draw the outline of the leaves with a shape of your choice.
Step 5: Add more lines stemming from the bunch of balls.
Step 6: Then add another layer of similar patterned petals/leaves to give a flower a realistic look.
Step 7: Once you have completed sketching out the outline of the poinsettia, grab hold of a colors pencil and start filling it with shades of your choice. Use reds and yellows to enhance the beauty of your poinsettia artwork.
