Scribble Art: Lola (Grandmother) by Lila Marquez (Video)


I once had a chat with a younger acquaintance about how I have always been fascinated with old age and that I've always wanted a face filled with wrinkles because they look "cool". If only it was possible to screenshot the poor guy's epic baffled look at that moment. Well, I was as confused as he was as I remain clueless about my excessive admiration. First, it probably had something to do with a desire for a wiser outlook, but I was too young to conjure up such thoughts, anyway.  

So, I ended up doing a handful of sketches and paintings of the elderly like this one. And it remains a challenge for me to paint similar themes to this day. Maybe even more so with scribbles. However, I'd definitely work through the complex compositions and values as I do more of the stuff. For the meantime, here's a timelapse video of the quick sketch I made earlier this month.
