20 Chicken Drawing and Painting Ideas

I earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Use these chicken drawing ideas and chicken painting ideas to inspire your next art piece. You’ll find simple and advanced sketches and drawings, fun drawing ideas, and more.

While using reference photos from other artists can be helpful, I recommend practicing using real-life reference photos. Especially when it comes to drawing anatomy. That’s because when using another artist’s work for reference, there’s the chance that you’re drawing the mistakes they’ve made in their work.
