Mourning Dove in Sycamore

Product Information

While spending delicious hours exploring the riverbank… and sitting quietly until the rhythm of my being matched the river and I felt at one with the trees and ducks… I saw a mourning dove. Quiet in a sycamore that stood in bleached and shadowed contrast against the blue, blue sky.
I wasn’t sure why she captured me until I drew her. The style looks a little too simplistic, but I had to be abstract enough to portray what I saw.
Specifics: oil pastel and India ink on white paper
