How to draw a Dahlia flower step by step

Let`s learn how to draw a dahlia flower. As always, I declare: the best way to draw something good and similar to that as in life, is to draw from nature. And not (for example) according to my step by step lessons. These lessons are needed rather for inspiration and so that you learn to draw from general to specific and not get bogged down in details right away.

Here I will show you how I drew Dahlia myself. Of course, I got a living flower and that’s what I drew. The most general schematic sketch is required first.
