AFRO XXII, Charcoal/graphite, 10" x 8", 2009

This is number 22 in my current Afro Series.

The emphasis of this series, is to show the beauty and variety of natural black hair.





The model is a friend of mine and she has a nice Afro!

I have used charcoal dust, carbon pencils and graphite on Cotman Watercolour paper 300gms.
