I completed this sketch about a month ago, but totally forgot about uploading it since I’ve been mostly pre-occupied with making oil paintings.. I even haven’t done digital art in a month..Some how oil painting has just ‘grasped’ me…It just feels so fun to work with them..
I’ve titled it as PAPER STORIES. This just came to my head at that time, and seemed intriguing. SO, I started off to create a paper sheet bursting in the middle, as I may have seen some artworks on Pinterest that influenced me to create this. Not a specific piece though. so after creating the sheet, I wanted something more in it, and got the idea to practice a wooden surface as I has never really created a wood texture before.. So after that, I still found it to be too ‘simple’, so I got an idea! Why not make it symbolic?! if you added font to the paper, and made it symbolic then it would totally work out.. So, in here, the paper sheet represents life and the boundary of understanding. the wooden surface represents another layer, and one may not be able to fully understand life beyond this. This is the limit! the fonts represent the states of life/emotion; hence
One can understand life, and its meaning to a limit. Beyond this, one may find nothing..or too much to understand
