This was a self initiated brief in which I wanted to explore beauty through age.
The original photo was captured by me during a candid photo-shoot. I then recreated it in oil and a board.
I wanted to capture the beauty in the old lady, from the wrinkles to the fluffy hat. I did this through each brush stroke. Conveying the emotion in the eyes was another important aspect due to eyes carrying the youth of all people and therefore, beauty as well.
