Nail that 'fro!

November 2, 2014


I want spend a little time on a subject that I feel well qualified to address.


The afro. (If you check out my bio pic, you'll see why, lol)
I have worn one off and on for several years, yet for the life of me,  couldn't figure how to draw a convincing one on canvas!
I tried using squiggly lines, short strokes, circular markings... but it just ended up looking like a bad attempt at an afro.
After much contemplation, I figured a sponge makes organic circles and squiggles. The pores of the sponge mimic tightly coiled hair. I use a simple dishwashing sponge (a pack can be purchased for a dollar). Using short dabbing motions with the corner of the sponge,  a convincing afro can be formed.
