we’re going to be the lessons on ROBINS soon. (L22-24)
As such, I’m wanting to hone my ability of drawing them (to act as a model-in-action for drawing them.)
I’ve found a few decent resources for *me* to use (not so much for my young daughter to use; she’s only 5.5yo. She’ll never see these.) Drawing the beak seems to be my biggest hang up right now, that, and I’m wanting to improve texture on wings/feathers.
Thought I’d share my findings for other mothers that may wish to enhance their abilities. (my own art skills are rather limited.)

this one shows a BIRD – In General- but I really liked it as it is pencil drawing and has nice example of shading and feathers. http://www.easy-drawings-and-sketches.com/draw-a-bird.html
This one helped me a lot in keeping proper proportions. I also like that there are different stances, something I will continue to work on. http://onegraydot.com/how-to-draw-a-robin-bird-proportions-and-shape/
And this one was pretty nice for step-by-step sketching, which may even be nice for the budding artists in your home who would like to improve. http://www.dragoart.com/tuts/3312/1/1/how-to-draw-a-robin.htm
This youtube video is amazing to watch. I like the use of various pens, markers, pencils… lovely! (I especially liked the development of the FEATHER textures!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byRSCXvbhvQ
Anyway, I know this isn’t anything one can’t find on Google (that’s where I dug these up afterall!) But, I hope having some tried-and-true pages will be of help!
