Original drawing in studio, click to enlarge
About a year ago my daughter drew a Lapwing. I recently found it back in my photo-files and asked my daughter permission to upload her Lapwing on my blog.
My daughter’s Lapwing, 2010.
I am happy my daughter made this drawing a year before my drawing of two Lapwings. Her drawing is spontaneous and it captures what is essential about Lapwings: their proud and elegant statute. My daughter must have been about 9 years when she drew her Lapwing.
Picasso said it took him 30-40 years to be able to draw like a child again. He couldn’t be more right about the underlying assumption that children draw essential lines and features and that an adult mind often corrupts and blurs a pure and spontaneous perception of objects.
My daugther has her own art colourful blog.
