Faces of Penang - Generations

During my stay in Penang this year I had an opportunity to attend the Thaipusam festival.  At the foot of the hill leading up to the Indian temple I happened to snap a photo with my iphone of three generations of women taking a break in the shade on a very hot day.  The photo was not all that great but I liked the composition and used it for the basis of this pen and ink illustration.  I really liked the contrast in the women's ages, each one gazing in a different directions and the variety of textures.
