For the love of birds

Yesterday for my science homework I read about John Audubon who was a French-American artist who loved and studied birds. My parents have taught me that a great way to become a better artist is to draw or paint the work of other great artists. This photo is from the National Gallery in Washington D.C. and here is a very good artist we saw copying a painting. I really liked John Audubon and decided to try drawing his flamingo. I decided to make my flamingo pink and added a yo-yo.
Here is a fun way to come up with ideas-a word cloud I made at school of things I like.
