Please, would you take a look at these sentences and correct my grammatical mistakes:
1. Asked about his poor childhood, the old painter answered, tears brimming in his eyes, that he was more hungry than satiated.
2. Before the man collapsed, he had suffered an unbearable pain in his chest, piercing through his body like a sharp knife.
They look fine to me.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
