Artist's description:

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.

Supplied signed with certificate of authenticity

Materials used:

Bristol board, Graphite pencil, Polychromos coloured pencil
