I am really not sure why that song popped into my head. Oh yeah - could be this white (kinda white) pigeon.
I enjoyed this one and put a bit more time into it that some of the others. I am not sure I am really happy with the results. But that doesn't matter. The point is that I did it and that is what matters. I don't always move beyond my comfort zone. For some reason this felt like a stretch.
I've heard that pushing yourself will help you get better. If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always had. It's good to push yourself a little bit.
I suppose I could let the drawing consume me. Then it would probably take many times as long. If the drawing took too long I would get discouraged. If I got discouraged I would stop. So setting limits on how long I'll take on a drawing is a bit necessary in my case. I'll live with this result.
When we visited Old San Juan a few weeks ago we went by Parque de las Palomas. There are hundreds if not thousands of pigeons in that park. Interesting place - pretty touristy but the views across the bay are really nice. They're trying to raise funds to restore the little chapel at the end of the road and it's open so people can take a look inside.
I really enjoy Old San Juan. There are a couple of art galleries I like there. We usually find something interesting in one of them. I think of it often.
For now, the memory of this pigeon will have to keep that flame alive.
On to the next drawing.
