My six year old son is entirely responsible for this post! He came home from school one day, and said “shall I teach you how to draw a pigeon?” It turns out that he’d read a Mo Willems’ “Pigeon” book at school, and had decided to copy the pigeon. Without any reference in front of him, this is what he drew:
Bear in mind that so far we only have one book by Mo Willems: Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus – and we’ve had it for just a few weeks. So I was super impressed, and I asked him to draw the pigeon again as a tutorial, so that we could show you all!
Step 1: Draw a circle (the head).
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle inside (the eye).
Step 3: Draw a filled-in circle inside the eye.
Step 4: Draw two long lines down from the head (the neck).
Step 5: Draw the beak (facing the opposite way from the eye).
Step 6: Draw two lines at the top of the neck.
Step 7: Add the body.
Step 8: Draw the wing.
Step 9: Add two lines for the legs.
Step 10: Add two lines to each leg for the feet.
I hope that you’ve found this tutorial by my son helpful! Thanks to Mo Willems for the fantastic inspiration to get arty!
