How to draw two loving swans step by step

Swans are noble birds that symbolize the best human qualities. They are also the personification of fidelity and love. There is a version that the two swans that swim towards each other are the prototype of a love symbol – the heart. From that moment people began to portray two loving swans together as a sign of strong feelings and serious intentions towards the person.

In previous drawing lessons, we showed how to draw an owl, a crow, a toucan, a dove, etc. Therefore, you already have the experience of how to draw the birds. Today we offer a step by step instruction with pictures and description of how to draw two beautiful swans. The level of difficulty of the instruction is average. You can also depict one floating swan, using our instruction.

You need:
1

Auxiliary lines

Draw two cross lines in the center of the sheet. To do this, use the ruler.

Don’t press the pencil too much while drawing because these lines are auxiliary and we need them to draw two identical birds proportionately.
As soon as the swan silhouettes appear on the sheet, the cross lines will be erased.

Main parts

The vertical and horizontal axis divides the sheet in half into equal parts. Drawing figures on one side, you have to repeat exactly the same on the other side. You must get a mirror image.

In order to draw a schematic shape of the body and head, it’s enough to depict two ovals. The dimensions are appropriate.
