Artwork description:

Women in India are considered their family's provider for an increasingly valuable material: water. Women are in charge of gathering water every day for use in their homes and on their land. A day's supply of water can amount to multiple trips to a local well for women. Indian women must travel longer to find new sources of water, and this affects their lives daily..... This is the burden they have to bear daily just to quench their thirst ... Hence the title !!??(Ref: The Water Project)

In this painting, I have created a textured background with dill paper and matt gel. The background was done using liquid acrylic and the lady was sketched on top. I created colored textured dill paper using acrylic paint and bubble wrap. Not exactly easy to handle but sure creates interesting textures.

Materials used:

acrylic, gesso, dill paper, matt gel, bubb;e wrap
