Drawing Feels Good

Luraline- by Leo Germano
Kids love to pick up pencils, crayons or other drawing sticks, and make their marks. That great freedom of moving a hand across space and seeing a trail that is put down on a surface! A way of saying- I am here- see what I have left as my record! Lines traveling, wiggles, cross-hatches and strokes that describe a thing. The object gets built by the lines and tones and comes up out of the paper. If we don't get too judgemental and critical, we can find great joy in the simple expression of marking in space. Leo is a natural draftsman, one who draws in a fluid way without a lot of hesitation. He finds the fun in his subject and gets his lines working to bring out the most simple yet interesting aspects of this ship.
