Description: 
Color Pencil on fine art paper. Framed with 1.6 cm wooden fame, matted. One of the most lovable work “Grandma”; created in 2017. Everything around me is an inspiration to my work. Capturing moments; I love to paint and draw special moments in life. Everything is special and has its own magic in my eyes. My lovable Grandma was the reason of creating "Grandma”. She passed away 23 years ago. I captured this wonderful moment with my camera, while she was breaking almonds in her small home in village. A capture of an unforgettable precious moment of life, created by color pencil. With this art, I want to convey a sense of sweet nostalgia and help those viewing it to be reminded of their own happiness and how important and valuable are those special moments in our lives. I’m using color pencil because I wanted to have control over my line weight and can be easily emphasized on details and shadows. Having control over my line weight is a great way to separate objects from one another and can help emphasize on shadows. I’m transferring the simplicity and sensitivity of the moment by creating lighting and softness shadings in contrast to very dark and thicker lines, where I’m conveying the 3D form and focusing on the figure. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully and discover the beauty in simple moments.
