We start drawing the feather using a long, slightly curved line – the rod, the hairs of the feather are being attached to it.
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.
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.
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.
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 go from the rod. The hairs are attached to them. Draw them along the entire length of the feather.

You can color the feather as you like. Let your child decide what kind of bird it belongs to. Maybe it’s a feather of the bird of happiness or the firebird? It’s up to your child to decide!
You can also offer to your child to color the feather online. It’s a funny and interesting activity for your child 🙂
