Curl Envy

11 Feb

Specs and smile

Another curly-headed Baby Boomer, part of my ongoing ambition to draw contemporaries within the next few months. I’ve been surprised at how many of my models have curls. I always wanted curly hair and spent a fortune on perms in the 1980s and early 90s. Perms don’t look natural though and I really envy those with beautiful natural curls, although many curlytops desperately want straight sleek hair. Drawn with mid-grey and black graphite stick into an A4 spiral bound sketchbook.

Happy Face

Happy Face

Here’s another of my baby Boomer drawings. This model had a very happy face, even when she was relaxing for a 30 minute drawing session. I’m up to around 40 sketches now and most people’s faces when they’re relaxed have neutral or even intense expressions, just a few have a smiley face. This is drawn into an A4 spiral bound sketchbook with a graphite stick.

Got It! Flaunt It!

29 ginger

Husb and I went for a curry at The Vojon earlier to celebrate that I finished the 20 drawings and prints for my next exhibition. Any excuse for a curry. I had a garlic lamb frezi with sag rice and Husb enjoyed a chicken aloo johl and garlic rice, with poppadoms and a chutney tray. I took my sketchbook and drew this bloke opposite. He is one of the gingerest people I have ever seen. Not only proper carrot-ginger but also curly. And proud. Because he had teased his ginger curls into a marvellous confection of a hairdo. Flaunting it. Nice. Drawn with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens, size F and B in sepia. And then, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Marvellous. What a great evening 😀
