AFRO XVIII, 9" x 12", Mixed Media on Paper, 2010

This number 28 in my current series of Afro Hair styles. I really love the look of Afros and I'll continue this series as far as I keep loving it!



For this piece I had my friend Shola as the model, she turned up to a get-together with this Afro and without wasting time I asked if she'll like to part of the series and she agreed.

This piece was done in an "experimental manner" I used watercolour, coloured pencils, liquin, wax crayons, Biro and an oil based pencil on a paper with a liquin base to stop absorbency. I just love trying different mixed media techniques.
