Hair today, Gone Tomorrow? 365 Days of Drawing...




I have always loved back views in paintings and drawings. My husband said once to me don't bother doing them. "Who wants to buy a back view in a painting?" The next day we walked into a gallery and there was a "backview", I think a Pino painting, selling for thousands. So there!

Will my drawing today for my 2010 challenge be 'hair today, gone tomorrow'? You tell me...

I kinda like what my BIC pen did with those wisps of hair on canvas.

This is lovely. Back views can be enticing, mysterious. I, for one, don't think I'd want a portrait of someone I didn't know, not especially. Unless it was particularly artful, I guess.

You know, you might need a challenge shower -- are you running low on Bic pens?

Thanks Rosie

Back views feature prominently in the challenge because no hassle to put on FB. Full frontal perhaps not a good idea...we will have a party for sure when this is done.
