Mother of Sorrow

I use water color in making this picture. actually, i copied this from a little novena book but i made it 6 times bigger..i'm using only black and white water color and a black signpen (.10) for the outline) and i did it in a linen cartolina.
Well, am not really good coz i was not given the opportunity to be come a professional artist... besides, am busy with my work so i can hardly do my favorite hobby... i did this almost four years ago on a holy week... i was reading this spiritual/novena booklet and i found that image of the Blessed Mother and was deeply captured by picture..it reminds me of how much pain she felt when she saw her son, Jesus, crucufied and died on the cross...
That's what inspires me to do this drawing... it's just that it wasnt made that good because of the atmosphere at home and im not being comfortable with my workspace..am just hoping you like the pic..thanks for viewing!
