Sketch of Dorothy, Graphite on Paper(A2) 2009



Today I got to sketch a wonderful lady introduced to me by my friend Graham, She is 102 years old and she is knowledgeable, humorous and friendly!



She used to teach nurses at St Thomas Hospital years ago and she even does some drawing herself. She showed me a picture she did in her 90's! I couldn't believe it! This is the oldest person I have met and I felt really great, having the opportunity to sketch her.
