Thursdays Drawing, Sorrow – #4

Today I was able to get an early start in the studio and decided to devote the first 1/2 hour to Thursdays drawing instead of waiting until the end of the day.

For the latest session on Sorrow, I went to work on the lower left-hand corner of the fabric, being mindful that while this drawing is of a statue, there still remains a certain look to achieve in order for the viewer to visualize that the subject is smooth-flowing fabric.  The surface is Strathmore Vellum, using 4H, 2H, HB, B and 2B.

Sorrow is such a powerful word to describe emotion, I believe it comes from deep within the gut – perhaps because sorrow leaves its imprints on our soul.  I felt this emotional pull the moment I laid eyes on the image  .  .  .  ah well, to be continued another day.
