HOPE

I have never liked the idea of discrimination, it’s a really ugly stuff and it has been in existence since the beginning of time. No race is superior; every race is unique in its own way. I wanted to paint an African and a Caucasian but decided to make the boy a little more of a mixed blood. Male and female innocent children looking at the beautiful ocean, with possibilities oozing in the atmosphere and a bit of mother nature’s very own avian creature (being a duck) about to take a swim.

 I have always wanted to paint an animal but not in the traditional way (God knows how many lion paintings there is in Africa alone, talk less the world). I started by creating a dark and colourful background (Blue, Cadmium red, Titanium black and a little dark green). Then I drew the lion on the acrylic pad with a white charcoal pencil and painted it with bright colours for it to look warm and bright, sprinkled a little titanium white with a tooth-brush for a starry effect. Pretty cool yeah?

 

 

FLAME OF LOVE

 I have always loved cartoons and any kind of animation, I saw a really nice illustration of Clark Kent (superman) and Diana (wonder woman). I imagined my own version and brought it into reality, added a little African touch to it (notice the man’s tribal marks). I painted a blue background and added a little orange and crimson red to some parts; I wish you guys could actually really see it live.
