Lunch TIme

Without too much fanfare or careful rendition of the precise form and markings of birds, I've created a family of birds. Usually I spend quite a bit of time attempting to get the proportions correct, to have the drawing bear a resemblance to the real. So being encouraged to play, to forget about getting something right feels airy.

I didn't worry about composition or color or value—thats for another day.

I consider these drawing activities similar to pre-writing. It's that place where you're not quite sure about how to start or what it is you really want to say. So you just pick up your pencil, or place your fingers on the keys and begin to write.

As for my birds—it's probably two families.
