Hello Matt,

Drawing an older person is both challenging and rewarding. It is challenging in that you will not live long enough to possibly transfer all the available information to the substrate of choice. It is rewarding for the same reason. The younger the subject the less information available. It is like completing a 1500 piece Jigsaw puzzle vs. a 500 piece puzzle. The former is much more rewarding. This took me about ten hours. I thank you in advance for the time and expertise you give to our critiques.

Best Regards,
