So this is another piece of work for which I had drawn this for the same subject.
Again, I struggled with drawing hand. I would have drawn it visible but in translucent, but all the combinations of the figure, the lines, the choice of the colors, hue, shade…made it a little too invisible or hard to see.
Well anyway, this was my best I tried for the work, and it will be great if this leaves something in you.
Everyone has beautiful soul in yourselves, but many of us got lost to keep it shined in the busy and complicated day to day life. Our modern life makes us easy to build worries and pressures, and get lost ourselves by fatigues.
With my sincere hope of my friend’s recovery from depression…
I have drawn Jacarandas with pastels for my friend’s birthday.
It should be looking like a bit plain work for the occasion.
It will be the last birthday for her to celebrate it in Sydney, under full bloom of Jacarandas, so I hope she will like this. She will be a resident of Northern Hemisphere next year, where there will be framed in coloured leaves when she gets her birthday 😉
So this is one reasons why I kind of gave up carrying my DSLR and tripod with me. 🙂 One of my plans to accomplish during this trip was to do a pastel workshop for whose who had expressed interests to me since last year.
Due to the pastel drawing needs a suite of tools to do, despite the method was to use your finger(s) and rub them over the paper, it is apt to be rather bulky to carry by yourself unless you drive.
The workshop was made successful. The participants who had never done this before, expressed their beautiful souls onto a piece of square paper to the full extent. It is hard to tell you of how thrilling time I had with them as watching (and guiding) the whole process of the unique beautiful artwork was born out. Japan, which has turned to rainy season, have got Hydrangea in full bloom, and I suggested them to draw Hydrangea. Their touch and expression demonstrated during the work gave me inspiration and motivation. 🙂
I personally interpret this drawing process is quite similar to that you are meditating, which it may make you feel quite refreshing. I am so glad that I shared those aspects with them.
Thank you beautiful souls for having me share this time with you.
