The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting them and sending to your printer or saving to print later.

Drawing takes time and practice so if you picture does not turn out perfectly do not give up keep on drawing. If you draw every day soon you will be making beautiful pictures. I have a lot of projects so come back often and try a few more.

ART FEATURES FOR THE DOVE
Keep the image white as possible. The wings are medium to small for its body size. The tail is medium to large. The beak is small.

BEGINNING
Plan to have the dove at an angle which is more dramatic not just straight up and down- which is boring. Draw a line for the axis, this line goes from the tip of the head to the tip of the tail. Next draw a line across for the leading edge of the wings, Draw lightly at this point since you will want to erase some of this later.

DEVELOPING FORM
Use an oval for the body, draw this on the axis line. The top will be at the wing edge and will end at the base of the tail. The tail is like a Chinese fan, the head is a circle that goes over the oval of the body just a little. The wings have a curving line going from the edge to the tail. Draw a line on each side of the body to the wing and round it off for the shoulder.

FEATHERS
Don't draw too many feathers. Eight or nine on each wing and ten or eleven on the tail will be fine. Mark the feathers off for spacing before you draw them so they are all even and the same size. make them round on the ends.

DETAILS
The eyes are black and almost round, with just a slight almond shape. The beak is a triangle.Keep the feet simple, a few curved lines will work.

Do not color the dove, just use a little shadowing. Color the sky and leave the dove white.
