AFRO XXIX, 9" x 11", Pastel, 2010

AFRO SERIES Kezia pastel

This is number 29 of my current Afro Series. The model here is my 9 month old daughter Kezia.

This series focuses on the variety and beauty of natural black Afro hair.

I have gone a bit wild with my colours here, and that's one of the advantages of pastel. You don't need to mix, it's just pick, paste and go! For this I used the 72 Soft Pastel set by Winsor & Newton on a thick watercolour paper prepared with a light yellow orche wash.
