Portrait #13

This i.s the second time that I have painted this incredibly beautiful woman.  The first attempt I felt that the drawing was too dark and dismal.  In this drawing I left some of the image to the imagination and focused the rich values in the face.  I may try drawing her again until I can achieve just what I am looking for.  However, I do like this drawing very much.  This woman is a member of the Beja People who are ancestors of the true Egyptians.  Think about this for a minute; they built and Empire that stood for 4,000 years.  I find that just amazing.
