Classical Drawing and Hair

20 minute poses and our model had this classical look that made her such a pleasure to draw, alas she is moving out of state :(
Hair is always a problem for me, and the last thing I even want to confront, but I really like how the hair and bun turned out.

From the Virtual Instructor

I found another fan of Pierre-Paul Prud'hon and check out how his work inspired this artist, Kenneth Peters, at Brush Tips.
Gonna get out my Prud'hon book, which is filled with amazing drawings. 
 Not sure how I lucked out getting this book because it is out of print and now very expensive. I picked it up in a big old bookstore in New York for $30 many moons ago and have cherished it ever since.
