Learn to draw a bird’s feather step by step (+coloring)

The child doesn’t always understand how to draw the plumage in the process of a bird drawing. Sometimes you need to draw each feather separately. We offer you our step by step instruction to teach your child. It will be much easier for him or her to draw the birds.

You need:
1

Rod

We start drawing the feather using a long, slightly curved line – the rod, the hairs of the feather are being attached to it.

2

Upper part of the fan

The fan is a feather itself. If you look at it under a microscope, you will see that it consists of thin hairs connected to each other. Draw the rounded upper part and draw the line down.

Middle

Draw some curves on the fan. Draw the lines down, but pay attention that they are curved slightly to the right side.

Curves on the feather

Any feather can be perfectly smooth. It depends on the connection of the hairs. If it’s damaged – the hairs can be disconnected. Then the feather will get the notches in the form of triangles. Don’t forget to add them.

Lower part

Draw the bottom part, connect the lines of the feather at one point. Don’t draw them to the very bottom of the rod. It remains in order to attach the feather to the body of the bird.

Details

The lower part of the feather is near the rest parts, that’s why the feather loses its shape. Draw a few hairs sticking out.

Veinlets

Veinlets go from the rod. The hairs are attached to them. Draw them along the entire length of the feather.
