AFRO XVII, 13" x 10", Mixed Media, 2008

Number 17 in my current Afro Series.


The emphasis is on the variety and beauty of black natural hair.

The model here is a lovely girl that attends Sunday School in my church.

I have used acrylic washes to start, then watercolour, after which my carbon pencil, wax crayons and white charcoal pencil came in handy-I almost ruined this piece, sometimes one needs to know when to STOP!
