Drawing in Peace

My Vision of Peace
I chose the dove with the olive branch because it is recognized by so many as a symbol of peace. Watching a bird soar is such a peaceful vision, I decided to draw the dove from the ground looking up. For balance and to send the eye circling around the sun I added a second bird, then gave them a distinct feather pattern. The peace sign on the sun further re-enforces the title, as the doves “draw in peace.”


Medium
This was drawn freehand with a Micron ink pen on a parchment print paper; color was added with Prismacolor pencils. The technique is challenging and requires focus. One mistake with the pen requires starting over, thus I literally had to “draw in peace” to avoid that!

Well balanced and the looking up view is cool, if you could find a ceiling to paint it on that would be sweet too

Thanks! I actually paint murals as part of my living, you're right, this would translate nicely!
