Quarantine Portrait Series: Self Portrait with Double Chin and Jowls

I leaned over the camera for the reference shot to this quick sketch.  I wanted to see the weight of my face.  I also got to see my double chin. My dad had a double chin; s I only see my double chin now and again.   For some reason, as I posted this latest self portrait, I thought of the artist John Coplans. Later in his life, he did a series of photographs of his aging body.  In some (less adventurous) way, I am exploring my own aging process.
