Girl in Plaid
Well, I have to do something that is purely fun tomorrow, because every last brain cell I have is fried. Last weekend I bought a postcard of a head Velasquez had done of the Infanta Princess Something, I can't remember her name. She has elaborate hair, but the whole thing is very simple, even the form of the hair is simple, with an indication of pearls and curls within it. And I approached this determined to simplify (except for the plaid) and yet.....sometimes it just exceeds my grasp. I take my hat off to him, again.
