But if you know the person well enough...and it should be about the emotion more than accuracy, although with these types of paintings accuracy is important

I'm gonna try to draw him with his late 60s beard.

Both are important...in order to breathe life into it, it must first be accurate and then the subtle nuances of character, pose, mood, etc...
I was never fond of beards, his or any other :) Good looking men look better without covering their faces with hair, IMO
