I was drinking a tea and watching the rain roll down my kitchen window when I spotted a pigeon sitting on a branch of the tree outside. It was preening itself. I watched it for a full 15 minutes and I reflected that at that moment, in certain regards, that pigeon knew what it was doing with its life better than me. So I decided to draw it.
Obviously this isn't actually the same pigeon because I would have had to catch it (cruel and logistically challenging) and then persuade it to model for me (wholly unrealistic) so I settled for using a stock image instead.
My first outdoor sketch of the year and I fecking swear I had forgotten how much I love drawing in the open air. I had such a beautiful experience while this image was appearing on the paper in front of me. When this process starts to happen it feels like I am one lucky bystander. It feels so wonderful on a pretty grand scale in my head. Like everything finally makes sense and I'm where I'm supposed to be and nothing else actually matters at all. This will make me sound weird and/or soft but as I was drawing this I wasn't far off crying. Can you imagine for my twenties I didn't do any of this?! Can't wait for sketching season.
Anyway, no pencil, kinda messed up the shading but still like it. It's of the alternative community who occupy some land near the canal. I'm going to get a print of it and go down there offer it as a gift just in case they're interested, cos I think it's the back of someone's house.
Live pen sketching (no pencils harmed 🚫✏️❌) featuring the gorgeous people of SketchCircle this evening. I'm really happy with my progress. I find drawing people live straight with pen really hard, so this is progress baby and feels pretty rewarding.
