Granny Flash by imaginism Granny Flash by imaginism
There's something about the elderly that I find so attractive to draw and paint. Here's a older piece but still one of my favorites. She's called "Granny Flash." It was done for Imaginism's first book Girl Sketches [link]

For those interested, my August 7th online class for Digital Painting Techniques is almost full. You can register at schoolism.com [link]

everytime I get on the train in the morning theres always a few elderly men that I can't resist drawing. I kinda feel bad watching them in the corner of my eye, I don't want to offend them or give them the wrong idea but I just find elderly people fascinating to draw.
I love how their skin kinda just folds around their face and their eyes always look really big but kind of like they have sunken into their skull.

I wish I found this earlier, I would have loved to join in on your lesson! Are you still running them by any chance?
