Many creatures can be drawn by starting with some simple shapes! Why not have a go at drawing a bird using this technique? Once you have your bird shape, you could colour it in any way you like, perhaps copy the colours from a bird you have spotted in your garden or outside your window? Or you could really use your imagination to create a unique bird of your own!
Here is an instruction video, showing how you can draw a bird, starting simply, and then adding each different part bit by bit.
