A Study of Unruly Hair

THUMBING through a book about the artistic relationship between Matisse and Picasso, I caught sight of a woman with unruly hair. It prompted an instant desire to produce my own version.

Armed with felt pens, I made a few sweeps across the paper - Picasso style - and then built up the colour to produce the cheeky lady pictured above.

She's called Blond Woman with Unruly Hair. Not a bad looker, come to think of it.
