Camel is a large herbivorous animal from the desert and steppes. It belongs to so-called tylopoda (it means swollen foot). There are domesticated camels as well as wild ones. Camel`s legs end with some kind of growths, much different from hooves. Camel inhabits the places with conditions very harsh, for example, grounds so quicksand and hot that it is impossible to move on the hooves. Also, there are growths on camel`s chest and knees, so the animal is able to lay down on hot sand. We can specify a number of other interesting features of a camel. The most important is it`s hump. There are two main kinds of camel: one – and two -humped. The hump consists of fat (supply of nutrients) and helps the animal not to die from hunger or thirst in the desert. They call one-humped Dromedary and two-humped Bactrian. Bactrian is bigger and stronger, it`s fur is longer. It is very significant to animal`s image that it`s rear part (including rear legs) looks much weaker than we can expect from this kind of a beast. Contrary it`s “shoulders” and curved long neck are covered with thick long fur look massive.
Here are some Camel coloring pages which I drew for you:
Choose any camel coloring page and print!
Now it is time to paint the camel beige or brown.Well, the camel looks fine, but we need to do something with snow-white background. The most logical is to paint the desert. But it’s hard to put the landscape under the existing figure.
I’ll draw a desert separately. Than I`ll cut the figure of my camel from coloring page and glue it on the prepared landscape:I hope he is now more comfortable than it was on a white sheet.
