African man/woman...?!




My husband and I are having a debate about the gender of this person. I have had the photo for awhile, and always thought it was a man. He instantly thought it was a woman... So please vote! I am still having trouble getting the photos I'd like. I think I need to get a piece of plywood or other stiff board painted a neutral color so I can take the paintings outside for the natural light but not get reflections from the white.

Anyway, he/she is done! This was done with just the 5 warm grays, no mixing. I only used white at the very end, on the head wrap.

I thought it was a woman. Beautiful job--and also on your 20 year old drawing--wow! :)

I vote... woman. The features, to me, are too feminine to be a man, but that's just my opinion. Beautiful painting!
