Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
Hello there! As promised, I’ve gathered up a few quick bird sketches to share with all of you today. I found these adorable photos on Pixabay and had so much fun drawing them! I’m still trying to decide whether or not I should add to the backgrounds, but in the meantime, let’s get right to it!
I love how the weaver looks so calm, but aware of its surroundings at the same time. This one probably took the longest to draw, as I found it difficult to create the texture of the feathers.
My personal favorite is the robin—it looks so friendly and curious. I always enjoy drawing the face, as each bird wears a different expression and seems to have a unique personality.
Like the weaver, the hummingbird’s feathers were probably the trickiest part. Even so, I loved shading in the body—it’s so colorful!
Okay. This little one just melted my heart. Look at those eyes. I’ll bet he’s plotting something when we’re not looking.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Which is your favorite? As always, any and all feedback is welcome. Have a lovely day!
