Study sketch Maasai Woman from my trip to Kenya 2016. I wanted to paint this, but I have been intimidated to tackle this subject until now. Wait until you see the colors! Her skin is a rich red-brown, her clothing and jewelry are turquoise, red, black, pink and white set in a field of tall ochre grass typical of the Maasai Mara.
I worked on another study sketch using an ebony pencil and watercolor to further explore and determine how to approach a larger watercolor that I will tackle soon.
