For a couple of years now, I have been mulling over a project that is close to my heart, which I am calling Beautiful Human Landscapes. I would like to create a series of closely cropped, highly detailed portraits of some of the older folk in our society. These is so much emphasis in our society today on the beauty of youth and the importance of looking younger than your years. As an ex nurse and artist, I find far more fascination in a face that has endured life's ups and downs and tells a lifetime of stories. I would like to focus on people in their 80's and 90's across all nationalities. If you have some loved ones that you think might be suitable for this project then please do get in touch. I need closely cropped, high resolution and detailed photos so that I can recreate all the wonderful features of an older person's face. If I draw your loved one, you will be sent a free print of the artwork, however this is a long term project, so if you do send me a photo of your loved one, I will assume that consent is given for me to use the reference in the coming years as well.
Thanking in advance for any help that you can give. :)
