Pretty good as it is. Maybe shadow the left side of his face? (Our right.)

Re: Twilight Years

Not bad Mark - I like the gnarled face!
(A face is like a landscape, there are ups and
downs, so light and shadow for modulation.)

Re: Twilight Years

Anyone who has a go at portraits has my admiration!

I think you need much more contrast. Decide where light is coming from and emphasise light and shadow. Also some stronger colour. You’ve done well with the drawing - just needs some ‘oomph’ to bring it alive.
