For this clover leaf, there are exactly 3 leaves that looks similar to the shape of a heart that is connected to a stem.

The leaves are also a much darker green whereas the stem is light green. If you look a bit closer, there are also tiny veins on each leaf.

Now that we have a basic understanding of the structure of the drawing, we can finally begin.

Steps For Drawing A Clover Leaf

Step 1

Step 1

To begin this drawing, start by drawing a simple heart shape as I have done here. You’ll then want to separate the leaf by drawing a straight line down the center of the heart.

On the right hand side, you’ll want to draw another heart shape with a line down the middle connecting it to the first leaf your had drawn in the previous step.

And here are the last final stages of your drawing. You’ll want to include two lines done that are slightly more curved and this will be the stem of the clover leaf.

If you are not planning to color in this drawing, then be sure to include the tiny details such as the veins on each leaf.

Doesn’t this clover leaf drawing look cute? To color in the drawing, you’ll want to make the leaves a darker shade of green and the stem a shade lighter, as we have analyzed from the reference earlier.

If you have not outlined the veins in black as yet, I would recommend drawing them in a really light shade of green ink or a white pen with the use of thin lines.
