Painting Birds in Watercolor is great fun, but you don't always have to approach them in hyper-realistic, detailed fashion. Breaking them down into simple shapes is easy, fun and quick. Great way to practice your watercolor strokes and techniques. Also works great with flowers, trees, or even human gesture drawing. Give it a try.
