About "Mama Africa"

This was my very first attempt at painting a human face. I always have people ask me if I could paint them or some family member. I am however very scared of paining people as there is nowhere to hide imperfection.

I was this image (or similar) on the internet and I knew that this would be the ideal challenge. It has a lot of detail that could distract from any proportional mistakes.

About P J

P J van Ginkel

I am a qualified Industrial Engineer, and although a lot of my professional work requires creative solutions, I never thought I would create art or anything similar. I was however encouraged by a relative to take up painting. she occasionally sells art and the idea of earning an income from a hobby motivated me to start. I did my first paining in December 2014, and dedicated a substantial amount of time and energy in learning about colour, light and shadow, shape and form, etc.

I do not consider myself a self-taught artist, since that would imply that I know art, I am still teaching myself art everyday.

I am inspired by the feeling of accomplishment and seeing improvement every time I create a new piece. The subject is a secondary thought.
