Look at animals and birds around you. So many things are made up of oval and round shapes. If you can draw a circle and an oval you can draw birds ! Practice makes perfect! Practice drawing the basic shapes first.
Start practising drawing curves.
Try drawing circles of different sizes and concentric circles.
Now have a go at ovals and spirals.
Try drawing wings and overlapping feathers.
Use simple shapes to draw birds in different positions.
Now you have got the hang of it !
