Himba boy from Namibia

I recently came upon a black and white photograph of a Himba boy of Namibia. Not sure of what I was even reading online that day, but you know the internet…one article leads to something else and so on and so on. But the boys facial expression was so captivating I thought that it would make a great painting. So Sunday I began painting the boy from the photograph on a 16 x 20 canvas and here is the finished piece.
I hope you are as captivated as I was with this young boys expression.

Enjoy!
