Look down to your feet right now! You are standing on your chaos, not just the external world chaos, but your internal visceral f*cking hell. I feel it burning every single day, specially during those moments when things don't work the way I had planned and I regret those wasted hours of hard work. There are also those wishful moments that are never realized to its full potential... and it hurts.
"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."Marcus Aurelius
The quote I chose from Marcus Aurelius helped me understand (or at least accept) that our personal struggles and victories will never be fully understood by other people. And it is ok! Life is not about being accepted, or loved, or understood by others. Life is about carving an authentic pathway in this dense forest of existence, feeling the pain from the thorns blocking the way, and rejoicing with the freshness of the air after a rainy day.
Drawing together Anne Frank. The image used as reference can be found on the official website of the Anne Frank House.
Prepare your favorite media and join me during a drawing session... I will draw Anne Frank this time. I use charcoal on a gessoed panel. The session lasts about 1h30min. During the session, I share some fundamentals of portraiture with charcoal and some of my techniques. Let's have fun and use our time together to develop our drawing skills to the next level!
