AFRO SERIES IX, 12" x 12", mixed media, 2008

This is the ninth in the Afro Series I am currently working on. I saw this little girl yesterday at church and I couldn't resist taking pictures of her in her Afro! I worked on one of the shots in acrylic, wax crayons, oil base pencil, biro and coloured pencils on canvas board.

I had to stop a bit early as was on the verge of overworking the piece. Also I wasn't keen on the resemblance as the emphasis of this series is the beauty and variety you can get from Afro hair.
