Masaai Children

Image 42 of 420

My wife and I visited Kenya in 1999. Part of our tour included a visit to a Maasai village. We arrived at the entrance to the small village located in the middle of an empty plain. Large Acacia branches were piled up in a tall ring around the outside of the village that acted as protection against predatory animals. We enter through an opening in the branches. where we saw several small igloo-shaped huts constructed from mud and elephant dung. I sat on the ground in the center of the village and prepared to make watercolor sketches of what I saw around me. Soon a large group of children gathered around me to watch what I was doing. What you are seeing here is a hand painted watercolor. The source for this image is a computer enhanced photograph. The original photograph for this image of the Maasai Children was taken by my wife Valerie. The original image can be seen in the Kenya Gallery in this portfolio. I manipulated the photograph in Photoshop, and then painted the image using india ink and traditional watercolors. It was finished in April of 2019.
