How To Draw A Flying Seagull Worksheet

This free printable how to draw a seagull worksheet can be used by parents and teachers to help give the young artist confidence in drawing a beautiful bird in flight. It is simple for the beginner.

Seagulls are beautiful when they are flying, they add something nice to a sky, and are not that hard to draw.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out the way you hoped do not give up. No one is as hard on themselves as a real artist. Draw every day and you will  become an artist. I have a lot of drawing worksheets in this blog come back every day and try another.

To print the worksheet below just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later.  If you have problems printing see the how to print tab above or try one of the updated links below.

Start with an oval for the body. Draw lightly so you can have clean erasure later on.

Each wing is a little longer than the body, (from head to the tip of the tail). The wings make a wide spread out letter "M."  Draw the top edge of the wings with a curved line going out and forward and the last third swings back.
The back edge of the wing has the same curves but draw closer together at the end where the edges form a tip-point pointing backward.

There are three rows of feathers one near the top edge, one near the bottom edge and the bottom edge is the third row.

The tail starts where the wings join the body. Seagulls have short tails.

The head comes right off the shoulder and the beak is short. You won't have much of the eye showing since our view is from below.

Color the wing tips black. Leave the seagull as white as you can. Color in the sky around the seagull so it looks whiter.

These are free to print but your small gift will help me keep this blog going, Choose your gift amount.
