Granny for Mother's Day

I was asked to do this portrait as a gift for Mother's day.  It is 11 x 14, done in
colored pencil.  The wrinkles are very interesting...much easier to
draw in fact than smooth skin.  I am using Polychromos pencils
on Fabriano watercolor paper.  It has a great smooth surface, and holds
the pencil well.

Second day...a little more progress.  There is not really a flesh
color; I have to mix colors to achieve it.  I
am using a gold underneath, then some peach color,
some rose pink, and some unber for the darks.  I
will continue to add color and detail as I go.
