I really liked splattering paint into blank canvases and creating something . But i wanted to get better and have a better knowledge, so i enrolled into a drawing course for my performing arts credit....best move ever. I got so much from it, learned of different mediums and was challenged with fun projects.
These drawings were my final project. They're a series focused around poverty. I was inspired when i saw Jan Schor pictures, and used one of his photographs as a center point for the series:
Above is Jan Schor original photography.
I started out with the background wall and added 'Rete Povwete' which means stop poverty in haitian and 'Ke Poze' meaning peace.
In my second piece i did a close up and incorporated the woman from the original photograph into the drawing..Guys the scarf around itself took me four hours to finish!
(Children taken from another photography, unfortunately i can't find the link to it)
This last piece was rushed, as you can tell. But i'm satisfied with the emotions in the little kids faces. I think this best replicates my intentions when doing these series.
I hope to post more of my pieces in the future!
P.S All drawings were done with graphite pencil,mostly 6B, 4B and 8B.
