Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful birdies…

Carrying on from our work last week on making bird feeders we have been learning how to draw feathers and birds this week. We looked really carefully at pheasant feathers to see the patterns and details then had a go at drawing them ourselves.

We then did some ‘before’ and ‘after’ drawings. Mrs Crowther asked us all to just draw a bird. There were some very interesting results. Then we spent some time learning how artist use what are called foundation lines to sketch out their ideas much like we do when we plan a story. Then we went back and added the detail. We think you’ll agree there has been a huge improvement.
