This piece was inspired following a trip to Kenya in 1995. I produced several works as a result of this trip but all of these sold many years ago. I held on to this piece and have recently revisited and altered it a little. As is my most common method of working I have not strived to create a painting that is of a photographic but instead I have worked to combine a realistic and beautiful piece of work with an abstract and contemporary background (using both palette knives and brushes). I felt there was a aura of gentleness and great knowledge around this man.
