How To Make Sense Out Of All Those Curls!

This is the last head of hair to do in my portrait of my grandchildren - and also the trickiest!  So I don't get too confused (which I am), I have divided it up into the biggest rolls first using just darks and lights.  I then went around the edges and feathered the wispy bits of hair off into the wet background for the soft, fuzzy look.  I'm now starting again at the forehead, one curl at a time, using purple to indicate shadows and depth.  I should be finished next year haha!
