I have to admit that I was scared when I started this piece. I looked at all of those wrinkles and I thought: "I'm going to be here for the rest of my life". I decided to use a softer technique than I previously planned, giving the impression of wrinkles rather then drawing each one. I first did the colour and the basic tones, and then quickly went over that with charcoal, adding in little bits of detail and smudging as I went.

This art piece / drawing is currently on display at Arebbusch Travel Lodge.
