AFRO XX, 10" x 8", coloured pencil/sanguine dust, 2008

AFRO SERIES coloured pencils sanguine dust

This is number 20 in my current Afro series.

The emphasis is all about the beauty of natural black hair.

I met a lovely lady, during the weekend and she had a nice looking Afro, not the kind you'll always see. I looked once and twice....then got the courage to ask if she'll like to be in my current series.....She agreed!

This was done with ghosting the sanguine dust on a self sanded watercolour paper. Then different tones of browns,reds and orange coloured pencils were used to bring out tones and details.
