Leg and Foot Characteristics

Leg and Foot Characteristics

Description: Many folks are intimidated by drawing birds because of their complicated-looking leg anatomy. In this workshop, you’ll gain complete confidence after I teach you about the fascinating diversity found in the legs of common orders of the world’s birds.

We’ll discuss the uses and adaptations of birds’ legs, feet, and toes with examples from a variety of birds such as diving ducks, perching sparrows, trunk-gripping woodpeckers, and raptorial hawks.

In the second half of our workshop, we’ll practice drawing birds with a variety of leg structures, so you’ll become more confident in sketching them in the field and in the studio!
