On Aging

I posted a video on Facebook of Whang Od, a Kalinga tribeswoman in the Philippines who is 92 years old, and so beautiful. She isn't pulled or young looking, rather she looks as old as one would imagine. It's not a common site nowadays with people trying to look young yet creating an appearance that is neither young nor old, nor natural. I tried to draw her from memory but got someone in their 60s as opposed to her 90s. There was something really beautiful about her skin, wrinkled as it was.
