    I find facial expressions are very difficult. I look at this and I can see an old man (defined as older than me) with a sort of right sided smile that extends up to his eyes and a mouth that I can imagine is missing a lot of the front teeth since both upper and lower lips are pulled in somewhat.

    I think you did a masterfull job on getting an expression that seems just right for an old farmer.

    Thank you, jibbs, barnburner, carlcath, coops, Alexandra,Juz, Nika, SKetch, jonwood, Alkratzer, for having a look.Your time is very appreciated.

    AL, i am so glad that this pic reminded you of something nice in your life. I grew up on a farm and that explaines why in my mind i am so often looking for a theme in those places. Love the animals, when they got killed i cried and hated the killer... butcher... for a long time. I remember those kids...little goats.. beeing taken to the butcher... they knew what was awaiting them... they yelled their hearts out... i couldn't hear it... it was such a rich life for a kid to grow up... and yes i had a grandfather.also.. smoking a pipe and sitting by the kachel stove... talking about the wars so am so glad i took you in those times also...

    He has a sweetness about him that I think is very charming. At-ta, do you have a link to the original photograph you used for inspiration?
