Things He Taught Me

I have started yet another little group of drawings. I have pushed my self a bit more out of my comfort zone and I am trying to use color (watercolor pastels), because I think its necessary to the work. I am not very familiar with this media, so a lot of these are still just me testing out the material.

Anyway! This little group of drawings is about things that my father has taught me. My dad is a bit of a bird enthusiast and I spent a lot of time handling, caring for, looking at, and just generally being around them. My father also enjoys moths and butterflies, so most summers were spent finding caterpillars and raising them into butterflies in our homemade habitat. I combined the creatures I learned about and the things I learned to make these drawings. This is just the very beginning of this project and I hope to improve my abilities with the color media as well as expand the series as much as possible!
