Her Thought

Her Thought

This is a drawing by pencil on paper, size 18″ by 24″

Her thoughts fill her mind and overwhelm her expression. What is she thinking? We won’t ever know, we can only make assumptions.

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.
