Hands That Give Life - Watercolor Painting and Process
They invited me to participate in an exhibition that will take place near where I live.
I am very excited, Wednesday was the delivery of works and Saturday was the exhibition.
Everything happened so fast, and all week I was very busy running there and here.
They showed me the space where my work would go, and I realized that with the work I had I could not fill that wall, at the last minute I had to make a painting.
I wanted it to be something significant, something that could fit other generations and what more than knowledge?
After taking the reference photo I made a pencil sketch, as you can see I omitted the bodies
It was not easy, from the beginning I received criticism that more than demotivating were really strange, people did not capture what I was painting
I started with Grandma's hands. In my drawing you can see the hands of an adult who holds, those of a girl and in turn take care of a plant that is very young
So part by part I went painting and putting a soft layer and then adding details
I was so happy with the result that I finally placed it in the front row, at the top of my exhibition wall
A big hug for everyone ;)
