Thursdays Drawing, Sorrow – #3

My favorite day to draw, ha – my only day to draw!  Anyway here we are again pressed against the deadline, but I did get my 30 minutes in and happy to continue on with bringing this piece alive.

Today work continued on the bottom right-half of the fabric.  Using graphite 4H, 2H and HB the folds with light and shadow were developed.  This is one of those drawings that I get totally absorbed into the piece, I guess it’s the emotional aspect of what the statue stands for that holds my attention.  Why is there so much sorrow in the world?

Have a good evening and thanks for checking in.

  2. it’s looking really lovely!

    ‘why is there so much sorrow in the world?’ – yes, sometimes i all but cry when i ponder the violence and hatred that affects so many people. what made them that way? why are people so angry? to those of us who have had loving parents, a loving atmosphere to excel and grow, we are so lucky. then there are the oppressed, the hungry, the sick – we are all enduring our own challenges and trials, and what a stage – thee’s a lot of bad out there, but thankfully there is also goodness.

    i suspect that all of those moods and emotions are going into this piece – or all of that is inspiring this piece.

    it’s going to be worth every thirty minute installment you give it!

      Thanks Lisa, I’m letting the drawing lead me along. There is a lot of bad, sadness and loneliness – I’d rather live in the world experiencing the good side. But perhaps hearing about, knowing or experiencing the dark side allows us to be thankful and grateful for what we have.

      Thank you for pushing motivating me to begin drawing again – it has given me a sense of renewal.

      I invite anyone who is reading this post to visit Lisa’s wonderful blog – she is an amazing artist who has brought tremendous joy to everyone she comes in contact with through her art and person. Please check out her link, there is a surprise awaiting you,
