How to draw a Lazuli Bunting step-by-step

Whenever I draw birds, I start with a light framework that blocks in the basic shape with an erasable non-photo- blue pencil. I add detail and color directly on top of these basic shapes. Double check your basic shape before continuing with the rest of the drawing. Click on the first drawing to enlarge it and start a step-by-step slide show.

The most helpful thing you can do to improve your drawings is to start drawing more. Just give it a try for one month. That is not much time. You can do it. You will see dramatic improvements in your work.
