Recent project – Tribal dance

For publication in the Backgrountry Messenger next week, I truly love this photo.  The traditional costume, the bright almost garish colors work so well contrasted against the simple, understated structure of the subject’s face.  This painting was originally completed in one sitting.  Then a spill substantially damaged the painting, requiring significant repair and repaint.  Both before and after versions are shown.
