Hummingbirds and rhododendrons, adult art class student display, 6/3/19

We did a practice sheet of black marks: beak marks, beaks followed by eyes. The direction of the beak stroke with eye.  With eye first facing one way and then the other way. We observed whether it was easier do if you have a face a certain way depending on   Which hand we use most.
Then we practiced the head shape which is a little bit like a baseball cap except it's flatter on top.
We practiced the overall Bird/figure contour.   We did those in both directions. We considered what the wing shape looks like besides just as the wing.  For instance, like a Chinese fan, a butterfly wing, and more. I see the shape as similar to the smaller blade of a jackknife.
