Drawings Of My Grandmother

The first four drawings on my grandmother are done few years later than the last two drawings. I can tell the difference because the drawing lines in the first set look more relaxed and free, while lines in the second set are more restrictive, making the drawings seem hard to “breathe”.

I have come to realize that sometimes, the improvement in drawing and painting skills may not necessary be due to how hardworking or how much effort the artist puts in. For my case, it is very much about my life experiences and how much I have grown from the trials of life. The more I experience, the more I grow, which broadens my perception of things, leading to a more “let-go” attitude towards life. This is eventually reflected in executing my works more freely, relaxed and comfortable…
