Adorned in Blue
Oil, Shwe Shwe & beads on canvas (1200 X 900) R29 500
This beautiful strong woman is adorned in brilliant pink cotton lace and blue patterned Shwe shwe fabric which is wrapped around the canvas frame. She has traditional Malawian beads around her neck and a range of different coloured African beads on her skin and around her wild hair, some of them even sparkle in the light as they have reflective surfaces. She was a pleasure to paint and her personality inspired the use of Michael Harding’s brilliant pink and Kings Blue Deep oil paint. Stencils were used to make the blue patterns in her hair.
