How to Draw a Flamingo

Flamingos are some pretty unique looking creatures. They have a lot of curves going on, but if you break them down into simple steps, the outcome may surprise you.
1. Draw a flamingo in pencil, following the diagram shown above. Erase pencil lines in places as shown.
2. Trace the drawing with a permanent black marker. Fill in the beak tip as shown.
3. Color the legs with yellow crayon, and draw some loose grass with a light green crayon.
4. Paint the flamingo with pink paint, the grass with dark green, and the sky blue. The paints used here are the liquid Dick Blick brand, featuring Magenta for the bird, Turquoise for the sky, and Yellow Green for the grass.
