post birthday tinkering

Another birthday has come and passed....have you ever got the feelings that your wrinkles are coming faster than the birthdays?
I wanted to play with contrast this morning, so I pulled out the gouache and found a great portrait off of flickr, and started to play. This is the result.

  3. I have a wrinkle on my forehead that's getting so deep that it may just cut the top of my head off.
    I like the drawing, he looks delighted, as if someone just ran over a kid's pet bunny.
