/ last night i was feeling absolutely awful & sad. i decided to draw, perhaps in an attempt to distract myself/rekindle a drawing habit. i have a lot of reference books out from the library, so i opened to a page in a book about the virgin mary and drew it. here's my charcoal sketch of dierick bouts' 1490s painting 'mater dolorosa' which means in translation: 'the virgin mary sorrowing for the death of christ'
