windswept

Another victim for my holiday drawing was my daughter. Her chosen pasttime while being subjected to the torture of the pencil was to paint her fingernails, which is why I didn’t even bother drawing her hands.

The wind had picked up as we were sitting at a table outside and it made the sitting quite interesting. Read difficult. Her hair was blowing across her face, so I was drawing different features as they could be seen through the veil. But there were moments when I wished that my pencil could really capture the movement and texture of it properly. Here I am blaming it on the pencil! Stupid pencil!

    I love the dynamics of her hair. I can just feel the choppy breeze. Given how much your models were moving, I was amazed that you could capture any detail.

      I wanted to capture the effect of swathes of shiny hair moving – this looks more wispy than it really was – but I was limited by the patience of my victim – I don’t think she would have been happy to sit still for ever! So I am also not sure how I would have achieved that as nothing was frozen, waiting for me to draw it! Thanks anyway!
