Art Lesson: Sketch Page of a Cardinal.


Today I am sharing a sketch page on cardinals.

I had a request to paint some of these,
so I drew one first, to get their proper body shape.

Here it is:

Adding paint makes them stand out more.

Who doesn't love the bright red of the cardinal against a fresh snowfall.

Of course, cardinals are beautiful any time of the year!

Until next time, keep sketching;
and thanks for stopping by.

As always, these sketch pages are free for use, just not for resale.

  1. I am going to give this sketch a try. (love cardinals!) The painting part -not so easy :)

    1. Thank you, Susan! I hope you find them easy to draw. They are so pretty: all song birds seem creatures of such grace and beauty.
