Thinking Of Doves

If you’ve been with me for a while, then you’re aware that things with wings, particularly birds, are one of my favorite subjects to draw. Lately I’ve been tossing around the idea of doing something with doves, so last night I got to sketching out some thoughts for my next piece. I’m just in the preliminary stages of this so nothing is final. This piece will be a bit larger than my art card drawings, probably about 5×7, so I’ll be working on it for a while. But I’m excited and looking forward to inking it, although, I wish there was a way I could just take the image from my mind and just place it on the paper. Trying to get something from my mind, to my hand, to the pen and on to paper can feel rather laborious at times.

  1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who fights to get whats in the head on paper. Then are the mindless doodles that turn out well. Go figure. Google Fritz Eichman(?)-Quaker artist for The Catholic Worker. He did a piece I wish I could frame/wear. It showed a dove attacking a hawk with caption:”The dove of peace will conquer the hawks of war”
