Can You Draw a Bird?


OK…can you draw a bird? I can’t. I can’t draw much of anything. Of course, that hasn’t stopped me from trying at different times in my life. I love colors, and every so often I get inspired to try doing a little artwork…which is an odd word for me to use. My art never works.

When I was about 14, I insisted on buying a set of oil paints and a few canvases. Since I can’t actually draw, I tried creating some weird abstract-looking thing, and it might have been all right if one of our dogs hadn’t curled up next to it while it was still drying and smeared the paint everywhere.

Another time, I did become fascinated by birdwatching and by the gorgeous illustrations of birds I’d found in several books. How hard could it be to draw a bird? A lot harder than I thought. Don’t worry. I haven’t saved any of my attempts so I won’t be showing them here.

At the moment, my artistic interest has turned to coloring books. About two months ago, I came across a fascinating book called “Creative Cats”. It’s a coloring book for adults. I quickly ordered two — one for me and one for my cat-loving daughter, Elisabeth.

Now, I’m looking for gel pens — and a little time — so I can get started coloring a few cats. Which, of course, has nothing to do with drawing birds, so let’s move right on along, shall we?

The reason I’m asking about birds is because today is, yep, you guessed it, “Draw-a-Bird Day”.  I’m doing my part to help out by sharing a few little links.

I’m not even going to attempt it. I’ve decided it’s better for me to enjoy watching birds than trying to draw them. If you’d like to do a bit of bird-watching, too, you might want to check out this site from Cornell University.
