Oh I’m learning how to drive :S only stalled twice today :D. Anyway today for some reason I really felt the need to go back to the stage of painting my grandma; fueled by my monochromatic phase I wanted this piece to be in grayscale. From my last post I explained the situation my family faced the past two years. The painting is of my grandma at the memorial of both her husband and son, so she was in an emotional state. She doesn’t like showing her emotions but according to my mother who was present on the day she couldn’t control herself. The painting is of the final moments of the memorial, and it is evident that she was all cried out. The image was quiet haunting at first but it’s funny how our minds are unable to process human suffering for a long time unless you’ve been in that situation; resulting to empathy for the subject. Yes I lost my uncle and granddad but I cannot imagine the pain it caused my grandma.
The painting is in acrylic with a thinner on an A2 canvas, I love the control the thinner allows me to have with acrylic.
