A loose chignon....my eldest daughter flew into LA yesterday for a wedding and had her stick-straight hair done in an 'up-do' for the event. I knew immediately on seeing it that this would be my drawing for the day. The chignon had a very J.W. Waterhouse feel to it.
I am happy to say said chic- gnon jumped off my drawing tools and onto the page - although a far cry from the greatness of a J. W. Waterhouse sketch.
That won't happen in my lifetime or the next no matter how much I practise.
I have a brand new sealed Waterhouse book for sale if anyone is interested from the recent show in Canada. It is fabulous. Email me.
