Learn to draw a duck in profile step by step (+ coloring)

We offer you to tell your child some interesting facts in the process of drawing if you draw with your child:

  • Ducklings take the first creature they see as their mom after the birth. There are many cases when dogs, cats, geese, hens became ducklings’ ”mom”.
  • Ducks don’t get wet in the water because their feathers are covered with fat.
  • Despite of the fact that the neck of this bird is short, these birds have more vertebrae than giraffes have.

Body

It will be easier for children to draw in squares. That’s why you should draw the auxiliary lines in the center of the paper’s sheet first. It will be easier to orientate where and how to draw the details in such a way.

Draw an oval from the point of the lines’ intersection with a shift to the right.

Draw a small circle in the upper left square. You can use your compass or encircle a small round object, a coin, for example.
