Portraits

I happened to have a pencil portrait phase some months ago… these two pieces probably represent the beginning of the development of my by now somewhat overly elaborate yet nonetheless preferred cross-hatched style.

My favourite subjects are elderly people (please no one be offended by this), because the natural wrinkles in their faces tell stories and bring out character in ways youth and supermodels with pristine features couldn’t possibly. And of course I added a self-indulgent detail shot. What did you expect?
