DC No.130: Hair


 Emily Trespas, "Swatches," Digital Photograph, 2014

I am fortunate to enjoy a variety of student hair styles, colors and textures when teaching my art classes. Hair is part of our identity—our phenotype. These swatches are a sampling of my printmaking and painting classes, plus a little (chromatic) grey for variety.

Ms. Nadine at Tiny Woolf prompted this week's drawing challenge with the theme of HAIR. Please visit her site to explore many other creative interpretations.

I love these little microscope cut outs of hair! I especially love the greying kind!

Hello Emily,
Hair, with or without, does say a lot about us. Interesting to think about, especially when considering how many natural and dyed colours there are.

I've always envied hair that can be twisted and braided and made into fun designs...mine seems to want to stay short- these little snippets really give you the sense of texture and I really like that.
(Would make a great layout in a magazine or book!)

That's lovely. I'm glad to see a world where everyone doesn't want the Ombre Loreal #24 option...lol. It's what I'm seeing most around town these days. Well done. :)
