"I do maintain that if your hair is wrong, your entire life is wrong."
Steven Patrick Morrissey
I love the idea of tangled hair. No, not the kind that hurts when you try to comb it, but the kind where you draw a face with lots of hair and then tangle the hair, as in Zentangle. My problem is that I really can't draw faces. I've tried unsuccessfully, believe me!
So I found a set of stenciled faces from Jane Davenport. First I stamped the stencil onto my paper with archival black ink. Then I began to pencil in the hair. After many lines drawn, erased, and drawn again, I got to a point where I thought the hair looked pretty decent. Then I went about the business of tangling it.
I'm not sure if I made all the best choices I could have for the patterns I used, but in the end I think this girl is having a pretty good hair day. After scanning the first version, just in case I messed up, I added a touch of color in the eyes and lips.
I have to say, the stencils were the way to go for me! The set came with four faces, which means I have three more styles to try out. Maybe I should have been a hair stylist.
