It`s best to have a model, whether it`s a real bird on your window or just a photo.

Step 2: Start With a Sketch

Sketch the bird with a pencil. At this point you can make changes so don`t be afraid to use the rubber! It`s important to have fine lines of your bird.

Step 3: Apply the Paint

I started with the cup first. You can have your own composition. You might want to draw only a bird, or a bird on a branch. Of course you can start with applying paint on the bird. It`s up to you!

Step 4: Colour the Chickadee
