What are you thinking?
I’m having fun
¿quin consell sobre l'amor li donarà al seu jo més jove?
What advice about love would you give your younger self?
fes el que et digui el cor
do what your heart tells you
quin és el millor moment del dia?
What's the best time of the day?
el vespre es el meu moment de tranquil·litat, quan tothom ja dorm
the evening, my quiet time, when everyone already asleep
Drawing from life picks ups your state of mind at the moment, what you were thinking and what you see and didn't see.
Often it shows your mood, your focus and attention span. Drawing from pictures reduces all the distraction of the breathing and moving subject. The images are more static as all observations are based on static object. What I want to capture when drawing life, is the mood, the often unspoken gestures.
These are postcards I did of my subject life, they were given to them afterwards and all I have are these pictures as remnants of my time with them. While they are drawn, some of the flash cards questions are answered, Antonio seem to have a nihilistic perspective on life, and Maria Fontalnas's handwriting has yet to be transcribed. Maria Rafecas is a happy woman, she likes her time with her bobbin lace work and she lives for her children and grandchildren. They all think the most important thing in the world is their health.
