Windows of the soul (one powerful hour alter ego)


Had some time yesterday to do this sketch in oil pastels. I have always wanted to have long curly hair but my hair although curly has never grown past my shoulders. I wanted to practise drawing the hair as I was finding it difficult to draw..this looks a lot better with all the shading in it. I think she looks very Parisian so she is my alter ego with her beautiful hair leading a bohemian life with her purple hat drinking coffee and leading an arty but rich life! what is your alter ego? I am up early today so as I get time before all my kids wake up..busy next 2 weeks with them all being off school so please send positive vibes for lovely weather so they can all play out!! Check out the other alter egos at the one powerful hour challenge...

She's lovely!! I love her hair, and the hat and the flower...and she looks serene and inwardly happy! I always wanted long curly hair too, and then one day, in my mid thirties it suddenly grew and curled....must be magic!! Sadly its not keeping its colour though, so that comes out of a bottle, but we can't have everything.

Wow this is amazing... I've been trying to learn to sketch faces.. and make them look real...boy is it hard!! So to do a portrait in oil pastels is such an achievement...I envy you ... but in a nice way:D
