Week of Fabulous Hair: Hair as Implacable Force

January 7, 2015

Above: A sketch of Sinead Cusack sporting great, broad wings of hair, in 8.25 x 10.5 inch Hand•Book journal. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Montana Acrylic Marker.

How could Sinead Cusack not attract my attention. Here in a sketch from my test journal of a Hand•Book Journal (which I'll post a full review on in the near future) she sports a sculptured structure of hair that stretches her face and creates a wall of force and challenge to all who see her, as she plays the formidable mother Hannah Thorton in "North and South" which I reviewed in an earlier post.

    Roz, did you draw all those lines in the hair with the brush pen? That must take refined control of your hand.

    Julana, I did, I was thinking about a brush pen class I want to teach and I was ill and wanted to be a bit fussy, and the paper was loving it. Fun Factor!!!! (I didn’t even put my glasses on.)

    I am really impressed. I have been playing push-me-pull-you with that pen at Blick’s for months. Maybe it’s time to try it.

    By the way, “Mr. Selfridge” is a period drama with some great hairdos and hats. Free on Amazon Prime.

    Julana, you should just dive in with the pen. It may seem weird at first, but then it will seem as natural as breathing.

    I haven’t watched Mr. S. I like the actor in it, but never have got around to it. If I keep coughing I probably will. Thanks for the recommendation.
