BEGINNING
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.
The body is like an oval or a teardrop shape upside down with a slight tilt to the left at the bottom.
Use two lines to position the tail feathers. They taper to a rounded point at the bottom.

Use two lines to form the beginning of the wing. These lines are shaped like the letter "U."

The basic shape of the head and beak are like two triangles, one pointing forward and down and one pointing backward and up.

The eye is in the middle, draw it first and use it as a reference to outline the black mask around it.

The feet are only pairs of short straight lines around the branch.

Use guidelines to keep the layers of feathers straight.

Erase the extra lines and add details like feathers. Use short thin lines to give the feathers a soft look around the chest and waist. Use long lines for the feathers on the wing and tail.

If you work in color this can be a beautiful picture; use red for the bird. Put blues and greens in the background.

How To Draw a Mountain Lake with an Island


Here are two links to updated files that may print better and look better

PRINTABLE NOTES
Start with a light pencil. Use the scribbling technique to come up with ideas for the picture. Scribble the background mountains. Draw the line for the distant water's edge and use an oval for the island.

Go over the scribble mountains by choosing the lines that make it look like a mountain range with different ridges and shapes. The distant mountains will be lighter and have less detail. The near mountains will have more detail and be darker. Scribble in the rough trees on the island and give some interesting shapes, like rocks, to the island.

Continue to develop the picture by adding more texture and shadows to the mountains, trees, and water. Add the trees on the far shore with up pointing strokes of the pencil. Add darkness to the island and trees. The water is darker closer to the bottom and lighter by the distant shore.
