Hi, I'm Jessica, and I'm an artist. And today, we're going to draw a Quetzal, which is sort of a very lovely bird. So, the Quetzal has, they're these small, kind of, well they - some kind of small - they've got this round little head and little kind of a petite beak that sweeps around, like so. And then, they've got these lovely feathers, these very dramatic-looking wings with these lovely feathers that come around. And, they're many, many colors, which is one thing that makes them very interesting. And then, they have this really interesting tail too. So, their tail curves down, and it's got these sort of curving feathers that come down and it just is this very dramatic and exotic-looking bird. Now, the Quetzal has a lot of different colors it's got - there's green, and there's also some blue in the tail area. My blue marker's acting up a little. Let's try to do - here we go. There's some blue in the bottom, and there's also some red on the front. All the colors just kind of smush together to create this really beautiful - even in the tail feathers the colors come down into the tail. Very lovely and exotic, this green. And then, and the head part has this also, nice green pieces that all flow together to make this really beautiful bird. And, that is how you draw a Quetzal.
