Pastels over toned paper
I don't know why, but i love to draw old people. Some people in my work said that's because i'm old like them.
When i start it, i already knew the use of colors with pastels, so i didn't had lots of problems doing it.
I feel so lucky because i let the paper to be the base color for the beard, and the spray (used to fix the pastels to the paper) that usually fades the whites to a dark tone, had no fade effect to the beard.
I sent it to a expo in Rome this year (2009) and received the silver medal.
