Let`s learn how to draw a Bullfinch. Everyone will agree with me – bullfinch is a very cute bird.
Bullfinches come to our city in the winter. Don’t know where they summered, but it is clear that they like to spend the winter on our mountain ash trees. Hundreds of plump red balls jump from branch to branch and disembowel bunches of berries. Then for a change they fly to feast on the seeds of the ash or lilac. And then it becomes clear that the bullfinch is good not only for its red breast, but its a strong powerful beak.
But let’s start to draw.
Although we just now touted beautiful color and a strong beak we will begin to draw not with these nice parts ,but with generalized sketch.
Here’s our picture: bullfinch sitting on a twig. When in school we learn to draw birds,I see that it is difficult for children to understand how to position the torso in a sitting bird. Because it keeps the body not vertically(as human)and not horizontally(like animals). The bird sits on a branch leaning slightly forward.
Our bullfinch is very plump, almost round. He folded little wings on the back.
The neck is not visible, and round head is located on the shoulders. The eyes are large(and probably sharp).The beak is very powerful even at a glance.
The tail also looks short and plump:
We just have to draw the legs with fingers grasping a twig.
And in order to make you believe it really is a bullfinch,we paint it correctly.
Bullfinch drawing – lesson 2
Step 1 – pencil sketch:
Step 2 – draw the body and the wing:
Step 3 – outline the legs (threee fingers are pointed forward? and one – backward):
Step 4 – draw the tail:
Step 5 – it seems that the bullfinches have a short neck. The head seems to be a continuation of the shoulders.
Step 6 -color our line diagram:
