Feathers define the structural form of a swan, in much the same way as clothing defines the understructure of a person. In this project, you outline the various shapes of the swan, refine the contour drawing, add shading to define both form and texture, and use horizontal hatching lines to indicate the swan’s reflection in water.
Jerome Okutho's insight:
This drawing tutorial is for any artist who wants to practice drawing the anatomy of a swan. It explains how to sketch basic proportions, draw precise outline, shade the swan and draw water.
