Painting waders

Here in southern Sweden we have a lot of waders along the coast (e.g. migrating waders from Siberia) and some common breeding species inland at field and meadows (e.g the Lapwing and the Eurasian curlew). Waders are always nice to use in artworks. But they can be difficult to handle. Their long legs and elongated body makes them sometimes "unbalanced". So, the anatomy is important to learn before you start..
