Art: Very quick gestural drawings

So these are really, really rough, I spent between 10 and 60 seconds on each, and they are done with a lump of charred driftwood I found on the beach. THIS IS WHY I AM SAD WE HAD TO BUY FIXATIF INSTEAD OF USING HAIRSPRAY AS FIXATIVE.

No, this does not look like a pigeon. Yes, it is meant to be a pigeon. Pigeons do not hold still for even 1 second, let alone the 12 seconds I spent on this drawing.

Anyway, I think it is kind of a milestone to be able to make recognizable images instantly.
