My Grandmother's Hands


Notice the weathered wrinkles and absence of a wedding ring. I had to get that watch too, I have no idea where it came from but it never leaves her wrist, even though her wrists have gotten bigger and the watch stays the same. I felt it fits with the time theme I tried to incorporate. My grandmother has a proud, independent story and I tried to capture a glimpse of it with charcoal. I wonder if I could do better...maybe I'll attempt it again soon! :)

Well, meet my Grandpa Wish. I finished this while we were in the hospital with my grandmother, (which explains why in the portrait he looks worried)Not too mention he kept moving while I was sketching this out and by the time I was done with his skin tones, he had fallen asleep on me! haha Well, not bad for not having all the colors I needed, and having a snoring model. Lol
I have always wanted to do a portrait of him. I love his facial features!
