One of the reasons I enjoy drawing portraits is because each face holds ‘history’ and tells a story; some a short history and some a very long and honorable history, like the face of 94 year old Granpa, a World War II Veteran. I initially wanted to write a detailed blog story about Granpa’s life/history to post with this drawing but then I realized there was so much to say … and he really deserved more than a quick mention hear So, I decided to just post the drawing.  Hopefully you can feel the history of Grandpa’s life through the texture, lines, lighting, shading and composition of the drawing.image
