More of scarves

Hair started to head south yesterday. Not ideal but to be expected. I am now practicing wearing a head scarf and think I could do worse than take note of how this fellow is sporting his head wear.
This is a another work by our old friend, Jan van Eyck (see earlier entry on Mr & Mrs Arnolfini). Portrait of a Man is possibly a self-portrait. The National Gallery (where you can see this painting) says we can tell this because of the inscription on the frame, ‘Jan van Eyck made me on 21 October 1433’, and because of the direction of his look. Whoever he is, this chap is a mean-scarf-wearer.
Hey, how did a picture of me just out of the shower end up here…..
My only experience of turbans is the bath towel kind so can’t offer any tips, although I remember my Grandma in the late 70’s wearing a ready wrapped white one – I think she was going for the glamorous Joan Collins look but it came off more like she’d had a nasty bump to the head. Glad to see you are taking a crash course in Art History. Liz xx
There should be some sort of Origami you should be able to do…maybe a project for some textile designers I know 😉 Also this is ridiculous http://www.amazon.co.uk/Baby-gami-Beginners-Andrea-Cornell-Sarvady/dp/0811847640
