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 

Also if you want to draw clouds, try this video

Here is a great video about swallows
and a brilliant bbc video of Swallows Drinking While Flying – Slow Mo!

How to draw an Attacking Hawk

Many people have asked me to draw an eagle or a hawk. I apologise for not having done it before or giving you all a shoutout, but recently the Paraguay and Mr Magana’s Class – The Sequoia Middle School Hawks – asked me so here, finally is a hawk coming into the attack for you.

It’s not an anatomically or ornithologically correct nature study, it’s a fun illustration so you can draw your own hawk pictures or posters or designs – Have fun!
