Scope and Contents
Lubell 3/3: 132
Ink and wash drawing of a stationary bluebird, seen from right, grasping at an unseen branch or structure. As no background or greater contextual elements exist in this piece, the entire focus is on the bird itself. Ink lines are used for a partial outline and detailing, particularly patterns around the face and details in the bird's talons. The main visual element, however, is the extensive blue and grey wash used to color the bird's plumage. Some of the wash, particularly the grey, goes past the border, giving a sense of kinetic energy to the animal. Graphite pencil sketch of the bird, partially inked, is on verso.
