ART307 – Drawing 3

I drew this off direct observation of my friend, Eireanna, and I wanted to capture her emotions. She’s been going through a lot, and you can see how tired she is from her expression and demeanor. In the drawing you can tell she’s skimpy over and weary from dealing with her teenage existence. Maybe stuck between a state of sadness and loneliness, she seems to just take a moment to relax and think, although she has a lot to think about. I’m glad she was able to do this piece with me, because it required getting a very active 18 year old to sit down for two hours. Overall, it’s a relatable image on teenage existence; how tired we can be without anyone realizing it.
