Black Lady With White Head-dress
Mixed Media - Mixed Media And Acrylic
This portrait was painted on hardboard with a layered plaster combo background. A plaster compound was mixed with various adhesive to ensure greater resilience and longevity. Over this compound I used a palette knife with acrylic paints and enjoyed creating more layers of various browns, siennas, umbers, reds and oranges to reflect the warmth of her black/brown skin. Always loving to paint the natural beauty of these African women, the high contrasts with the warm skin tones and cool whites and blue, (cool/warm contrasts) ended up becoming one of my favorite paintings.
