Art Description

Drawing: Color and Pencil on Paper.

Coloured Pencil on fine art paper

My latest and most lovable work “Grandma”; created in 2017. My grandmother was more than a friend to me, she was my guardian angel. She passed away 23 years ago. I captured this wonderful moment with my camera, while my grandma was breaking almonds in her small home in village. Since then, I always carry this particular photo in my purse. After 23 years, I decided to paint this moment on a piece of paper and bring back wonderful memories.
As I have aforementioned, I am an extremely visceral person and in many ways I put myself wholeheartedly into each design. I always try to convey my feelings and emotions through my arts and for this drawing I fully convey my feelings I have for my grandma. The whole composition of the art it relaxes me. The harmony of colors, that I’m using and the technique of movement I’m creating with pencil, finds a way to convey her angelic and peaceful face to life.
