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?
I made this for my home, simple and cool. Had a reference image I used, added my own concepts to it and it came up pretty nicely. Silhouettes are the easiest and coolest thing to paint, goes smoothly with almost any background.
This is actually one of my favourite painting so far, I just wanted to create something depicting how pretty, beautiful and incredibly attractive the African woman is.(oh and our legendary Afro hairstyle). Added some markings and made sure she wasn’t so obviously naked (sorry perverts, hehehe).
I have always been against racism, all races are beautiful. I made a split woman, African and Caucasian this time. Had to design colourful African prints on the Black lady’s dress and added warm summer colours on the white lady’s dress. I made the background too in a dual colourful manner, making a warm sunset on the right and night atmosphere on the left with some stars. Look deep in your heart, love and accept every race.
