Artwork in progress

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously..”

I have made this artwork while I am struggling with a sick body. I am battling a nasty cold and cough that made me restless from the past days. I couldn’t get enough rest that I needed because I feel lethargic. Fortunately, we have better days now, the sun is up, shining and we have clear sky that gives me just the right mood boost. The weather is perfect, still chilly but fresh and no use to complain about it. As the saying goes ; “The spirit is willing, but the body is weak ..”, but when I am sick, I felt sluggish each day.

Fortunately, my mind is still active and I managed to draw out some inspiration from painting. Here are some photos I wanna share with you.

Faces in the crowd

I am still trying out different techniques in painting and I am learning a lot through the process. I am a work in progress and perfecting everything through constant practice. Everytime I draw out some portrait of faces, the most exciting part is when the face finally evolves into a personality. It’s like they have a hidden message through their eyes, expression and mood.

What can you say about this painting?
