Drawing – the creating process

Drawing is a contemplating process with meditative moments. Seeing how the drawing progresses is fun and fascinating to follow. That’s why I have created this post. Here you can read about and follow the processes of my drawings .

Currently, I’m working on a drawing of a child. The child’s expression is captivating, disturbing and emotional. The subject, I choose to draw, must call forth emotions, which leads to a certain kind of communication. I wish to catch the darkness or the lightness, the psychological layers, of the subject.  

To get there, it’s both important to communicate with the work, but also to enjoy the process and not only focus on final result, to love the small achievements during the process.

I hope you will enjoy following the creation of a drawing.
