I always wonder how people deal with having to leave their whole life behind ... how they cope with having ... and then having nothing.

A4 HB 0.3mm mechanical pencil

Thank you ... this was in response to the Darfur crisis ... I just couldn't imagine what it must be like for those families forced from their homes by violence ... I still don't understand why some people think violent conflict is in any way an answer to any problem ... so sad that this is still happening now somewhere in the world.

Great drawing and well done on the concept. The seperation/leaving part is visible in emotive way.

This was drawn around the time of the exodus of ordinary people from the conflicts in Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan ... I can't even begin to think how that must be for people ... to leave everything behind.

Just fantastic. May I ask what sort of paper this is?
Reply

SalHunter Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009

It is hot pressed watercolour paper, 300gsm, very responsive with a greater variation in tone.
