Day 24: Dizzy – La Llorona
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019: La Llorona
Today prompt “La Llorona” is what inspired the creation of my whole drawing.
The Legend: “In Latin American folklore, La Llorona also known as the Weeping Woman or the cryer, is one of the most famous legends. It is the story of a woman. The lore states a woman was abandoned by her husband and was left alone to raise her two sons, whom she instead drowned in a river out of grief and anger. As a result of her actions the woman is condemned to wander for all eternity until she finds the bodies of her children, often causing misfortune to those who are near or hear her. The oral story represents La Llorona as a person, legend, ghost, goddess, metaphor and symbol“. (source WikipediA)
This is my Vision: of La Llorona I wanted to capture her in a specific emotional state, which is that moment when after all the pain and sorrow, when the sadness took all her tears, when there is nothing else out of her… that moment when she needs to surrender to herself and let it go all the pain, is that moment when she comes out of the dark, see barely the light and when she gets her first breath with a feeling of relief 🖤this is what I wanted to capture in her. I hope I did! Today drawing was a little on the darkside but that was the only way to represent La Llorona.
