Bittersweet Symphony – Day 1

Day 1 of my Digital Drawing Challenge!

Thinking back of living in Rio for 2 months at 21 years. I lived in Santa Teresa. I miss it a lot, “tenho muitas saudades” as they say… ‘Longing’ not missing.

I have vivid memories of witnessing incredible beauty right next to harsh and ugly scenes (violence, homelessness)…

I tried to capture my memory of seeing homeless families living under bridges and spending time on idyllic beaches.
