Underpainting for Indian Child no, 6/10
This is a little girl, from the Ogallala tribe. The sixth in my series of native American Indian children, I hope to finish it so I can list it at auction Sunday. She is mostly painted from my imagination- as I am looking at an old photo by Edward Curtis and adapting that photo to make the woman about 7-8 years old. Not an easy thing to do, but it's one way to insure my paintings are never accused of being copies of anything- ever!
