Meditation Monday - Bird Sketch

Focus in with the eye, capture the line, the shapes, try to get the essence...
Sketch of a woodpecker from a picture done a couple of months ago. Lately I have been sketching lots of faces, which I will scan and post soon. Meanwhile, my meditation for today (tonight) is more sketching. I have some interesting postcards to use... Drawing can be such a relaxing thing to do... let the mind go and focus in, really observe, really see what is there.

I so agree that sitting and looking - really observing - is actually very relaxing. What is it they say 'something about left brain, right brain ???' I can't quite recall but know it to be true, whenever i sit down to sketch (badly) or create with paper or fabric or thread. Lovely woodpecker drawing.
