Flamingo Head Drawing

It’s no mystery why people like to make art about flamingos. When it comes to color, shape and a natural grace, these birds have it all.

If you are just learning how to draw, however, it might be good just to concentrate on the head. And if you have room, maybe add another to fill your paper with some extra color. I love how the coloring of their beaks can be so easily recreated with just a Sharpie and single crayon. Just use a little extra pressure to create that darker tone near the head.
