learning to sketch hair

I’ve moved on into drawing hair. What fun! But it’s not necessarily quick. You must layer the darks and blend into the medium tones and create highlights with the eraser, then draw in the individual hairs….whew! Can’t wait to try more complicated hair than just a ponytail….just warming up! I’m continuing to work on my latest art quilt, but it’s going slow…will post a picture when the top is done before I quilt it…then when quilting is complete I’ll post another.

    • Thanks, Leslie! I’m getting so excited about the class coming up and seeing you again!
