How to draw a swallow in flight

Learn how to draw a swallow in flight and then paint it in watercolour

I saw my first swallow yesterday, which does not make a summer, but it’s always a great and cheering site to see them back for the summer.

I’m also drawing illustrations for a new book written by Michael Morpurgo at the moment. It’s a series called Mudpuddle Farm, and there are swallows in the story, which I have been drawing this week. See more here
