Chopsticks



Sacha wrote a poignant vignette of a mother and daughter's last moments together. The complete story is in her site.

I was feeling a bit down today so I decided to paint this instead of playing badminton or working. Pretty much my standard: oil pastels washed over with turpentine. The yellow background was done with soft pastel. I was going to outline it with colored pencils, but I thought it looked okay already.

I'm feeling better now.

    I love this painting. So moving to me. As was the story that you based it on.

    Also, if you don't mind my asking, what does the terpentine do to the pastels?
