Sketch done in my art journal, drawn from a
National Geographic photo. Masai bride in her wedding finery...
her expression is sad as she is dressed to
leave her family for her
"arranged" wedding. Her large beaded collar
(which I chose not to detail in my sketch)
is made from small beads arranged in color blocks and stripes...
wonderful artistry. The geometric background is not
necessarily authentic but suggestive of
tribal African designs.
