“Oshun, the African Goddess”

Inspiration & Technique

Drawn first in detail, then painted in a gray scale. Oil paint was applied in thin layers, then gilded with gold leaf and liquid gold leaf.

The goddess Oshun is an African Goddess, known for healing the sick and watching over the poor. She is often represented with a peacock. Using a peacock image I had recently created, I first made the headpiece, then the face just came to me.
