LIFE'S STORY

Pastel painting. A huge Thank You to Flickr's alirezanajafian for so generously allowing me to paint his incredible photo.

 

This is a painting of an old Iranian gentleman. Unfortunately, I do not know any more of his life's story than what is displayed on his face. I have worked and worked on this when I could but somehow I feel I have failed to capture the essence of his life. A good rendering of the wrinkles has eluded me so far as well.

 

I will probably do additional work on it as time allows in an effort to make the wrinkles more believable, although I do fear overworking it.
