Painting Study: African Woman Cooking

While in Bulembu, we did a few walking tours, taking in the town, the enterprises and the people. We came upon this woman who was cooking lunch for a group of local children who were spending the day at a track meet. I was so pleased to snap a quick picture of her assortment of pots and utensils. Her full skirt was pretty too.

As you can see, the greens and the rusty red earth are more predominant here in this painting. Since it is just a study, it isn't as refined as other paintings. I kind of like the rough brush strokes.
