Freedom by mitengu Freedom by mitengu
Here`s a practice piece I did with my pastels yesterday in about 15 minutes.

I was quite uncomfortable when I drew it because the last two days have been really frustrating: I had to come face to face with all these meaningless limitations that life puts in front of you sometimes. In response, I grabbed my pastels and I furiously sketched this little bird as a symbol of the physical, emotional and spiritual freedom we all deserve.

So beautiful. Really great, vivid colors, and the bird looks so alive.
It's somehow depressing, that really good art we create are made while being frustrated and angry :P

Well, yeah, I guess that is the main motivator for art! Art is probably born out of the frustration of not being able to execute or accomplish certain goal.

Take care!

I really love this piece ^^ It has a very classical, traditional feel to it... The vibrancy, the hope it inspires, and the subject itself. This is a very powerful piece, especially when paired with the description of why you drew it ^^ It's a great piece!

Thanks a lot, I didn't give it much thought when I picked up my pastels...maybe thought and pre-conception corrupts art?

Take care!
