Passing By

Passing By

This drawing using red chalk pencil on paper is of a woman whose origins and story is up to the viewer. She may be in hard labour, or may be looking at something happening in front of her that saddens her. The hardness of life behind her eyes is evident, but where is she now is up to what the viewer wants to interpret it as. The light coming from the sun was an important feature in this drawing, besides the various folds of the clothes, the light shines so that she is lit maximally without changing her features. The photograph shows some very light sepia tones around her face to the right, but on the original it blends with the background well.

Simple Love

Simple Love

‘Simple Love’ is a coloured pencils on paper drawing of one female’s love towards simple things as she lives the life of elegance and extravagance. The story of this painting is what you, the viewer, see. The girl looking at the apple, if not a little past it, deep in her thoughts, serious yet seems overjoyed over such a seemingly simple thing – this apple. But as the viewer, you have to look to see the tamed joy that comes with a bit of sadness as well, it is all filled with memories of when things were simpler, easier, poorer. What the viewer doesn’t see in this drawing is someone looking over at this girl in awe just as when things were simpler, easier, poorer. She is not just smiling subtly but also talking to the person who would be looking over her in and standing where the viewer is standing when looking at the drawing. ********************************************************************************************************************
