The subject of the portraiture class is Mbari. Mbari is Kenyan with amazing dread locked hair swept forward into a couple of horn shapes. These pictures are around A2 in size. I began with a charcoal drawing which was then fixed and a burnt sienna wash applied. From this point on all the painting is done in acrylics and water colours. In the second Mbari I then went over the painting with charcoal lines for more definition. In the third picture I ran out of time, so didn't manage to tone down the hot colours. Giving the impression of a sun burnt Mbari peeling.
