A Gesture in Time

Birds in flight, leaves circling down … can you catch the wind? A movement across the paper with pencil tip dancing, chasing an ever changing scene. Sometimes drawing is a race – a dash – a rush – to capture what cannot be caught. A gesture can speak in shorthand of elements and time as the mark on the paper records movement and intent. Become the thing you want to draw; let its essence inform you. Show how it feels to move through time and space.
