More class work

We have had video on working with art that has not turned out the way we would like, I have some trouble with hair on the top of the head, it always looks ratted, remember ratting your hair to make it puffy and have body? What a person did was backcomb the hair into this hive of criss-crossed hair. Don't forget the spray to keep it that way. I almost typed Spry, that was a

shortning for baking and frying. Spray or Spry it could be a sticky mess.

I did have this sort of thing going on in the painting, so I used some designed paper, napkin designs, a transfer all at the wrong time in the sequence of proper desgin of the piece. But I feel it is OK and I rather like it. I can't spend 8 hours working on something off and on and not show it. I had fun, learned someting, especially get things right in the beginning.

well, you know, it's not bad at all. It appears she's dreaming of a favorite place and time. Yes, sequence in layers can throw you off but you seemed to pretty well make up for it!

Emelie, I don't know why you don't like to do hair--the hair on her is great--it has a great flow to it!!
