Sarah’s Hair – pastel

fullsizeoutput_2ff6I am currently working on a few pieces (my aim being not to labour on any one piece, as I have a tendency to ‘fiddle’). This is my niece Sarah who has the most amazing hair and spends painstaking hours arranging it. She is a creative soul with an incredible flair for art and writing – in this sense her hair is just an extension of her personality.

(I’ve been experimenting with different surfaces for my pastel work. This is pastel matt. I normally work on Ingres paper. I’m liking aspects of working on this surface – the fact that it will take pastel pencils very easily for creating finer lines, but I can’t push the pastel around as easily as I can with Ingres paper, so the jury is out so far. I shall persevere and see what happens).
