Beautiful Massai who I named Awena, meaning to Muse. I drew this portrait from a photograph. I was drawn to the sitters eyes, hand position and stunning costume. This work has been rendered using graphite pencils and Polychromos coloured pencil for the costume. I wanted to capture the stark contract between the face and hands and the vibrant beadwork and robes.
This drawing will be shipped flat mounted in cream board, unframed.
