I’ve been feeling the urge to draw some Native American Indian faces – well – to be honest – it’s always there in the background but I hold back and don’t get down to it as I want to get it right so badly that when it goes wrong it kills me.
The combination of long hair, feathers, fringes and their sheer presence has always appealed to me because of its wildness and naturalness.
Both of them paint in a masterful and emotive way that stops me in my tracks.
I once started to read “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” by Dee Brown but had to stop reading quite early on in as it is just so tragic.
I love painting and drawing these people and hope you enjoy a look at some of my sketches and pastels that I have done over the years.
