Picture Art

Today I have experimented a little with some simple picture art, as a response to what I have writing about below. Even this time, I have been using the free photostudio app PicsArt.

European Lack of empathy

ISIS has  successful showing that the people of Europe have the same lack of empathy and compassion as themselves.

For those people who is fleeing from their terror has creating a wave of xenophobia among many Europeans, but even among Trumps American voters. And now the doors is closing down for them.

New plans

By chance, I read an article about the norwegian mass murderer and racist Anders Behring Breivik, who seems to hang out with new plans. At the same time the supporters of the xenophobian German party  AfD, whose party leader has said that German border guards should shoot syrian refugees.

Drawn Hands

I have just started learning how to draw hands by Youtube tutorials.

I drew the hands of the artwork above after I had entered ‘Nyhetsguiden’ (The News Guide) and the blog ‘Sonja Hej’ (‘Sonja Hi ‘)  by Sonja.

  Becoming A Christian 

Sonja tells that she recently has become a Christian, a believing that I share.

I googled on: ‘ drawing hands ‘ to make an illustration for this blog post and I found ”draw hands part 1” by Johan O Karlsson (he speaks swedish on the he tutorial).

I followed his first lesson on how to build up a hand.  Then I did the artwork above ”on my own”, but using the instructions.

I read somewhere that It’s difficult to draw hand, and I agree.

The artwork below I made a few years ago by drawing my own hand. I don’t think the proposition is right. I didn’t build this one following lines.
