Hair study, ballpoint on moleskine sketchbook

Here is a painting I did to accompany my friend Rosabel’s touching story of a friend who committed suicide after being let down by the system. If you’re in New Zealand there are links to follow at the bottom if you or someone you know is suffering. Thanks to thewireless.co.nz and Rosabel Tan!

Hello, thank you! 

I leave hair till last and treat it as its own thing. What I’ve found works best is patience- divide it into sections and attack it that way, a little bit at a time, instead of as a whole. Exaggerate lights and darks, obviously only shade the direction the hair falls. I find drawing hair relaxing, hence so many sketchbook pictures of it- practice!
