Pencil study



This week's topic on Illustration Friday is 'Ageing'. I remembered this pencil drawing of my Nona, my Italian grandmother, that I did years ago, when she was 95. I particularly liked the faraway expression.

The light pencil on her face makes her skin seem very thin, fragile, and...old. Her expression reminds me of my grandmother in her last years. It's very beautiful, both for the technique and the emotion.

You have a knack for writing. I read about 20 blogs a day, and skim about 30 more, so I mean it! We can all use improvement, but you certainly are better than most I've read.
I've just started a blog, about drawing (I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop you a line just to get a little advice. Ok?

Rejoice in every melody you heard, the smiles you shared with strangers,

the blissfully simple laugh of a child, the spun sugar clouds waltzing

through a patch of topaz sky. Now snuggle into your favorite pillow

and be filled with warmth and perfect peace. Car insurance
