Clover is fun to draw. This lesson could also be called How to Draw a Shamrock because the shamrock is a three-leafed clover. It is also known as a symbol of Ireland. You could draw a shamrock in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

When I was a kid, I used to love to plop down in a patch of green and look for four-leafed clovers or make necklaces by attaching one bloom to another. Clovers remind me of lazy summer afternoons and I often find myself doodling pictures of them when I am talking on the phone or sitting in meetings. You will have fun drawing them too, so grab a pencil and a permanent marker along with some watercolor pencils and a paint brush.

Now let's get started with the How to Draw Clover
step by step drawing tutorial.
