Color of Age


I saw this lady at the bookstore the other day. Her hair had once been black but was slowly turning gray and was very white at the roots. I loved that she didn't bother to color it, black or white, but just let it grow naturally. But what I loved the most was that she wore a sweater that matched her hair perfectly, white at the shoulders and slowly turned black near the waist. It was such an odd sight I have to say. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera in the bookstore, so I started this drawing as soon as I got home.
