Let`s learn how to draw a landrail. This bird is also called corncrake or simply crake.
I usually state with sadness that I have not seen in the life those animals or birds about which I write drawing lessons. But the situation with the corncrake is better – I was lucky, I heard his voice many times and even he himself ran past me in the grass. However, due to surprise, I hardly noticed it. Therefore, we will still draw basing on the photos.
Landrail(corncrake) drawing lesson 1
Crake is a bird of the rail family. Rallidae are also called 1) meadow chickens 2) mud hens. And it must be said that There is something chicken in it, the corncrake really looks like a quail, or a partridge.
The body has a middle shape between the oval and the triangle.
The neck is long, apparently very mobile. The head is round and small with large eyes and strong conical beak.
Corncrakes have wings as a fact, but they avoid flying in every possible way and run well. The legs are sturdy with long fingers.

The neck is thin and the head is with a very strong beak:

Coloring is reddish-brown, spotty.
