African School Kids

These little cuties were painted from the following photo. A friend of mine went to Africa on a mission trip and took some fantastic photos. When I saw this one, I knew I just had to paint it. I was not sure whether to paint the girl on the left with her off centre jaw or not, she was obviously not too concerned with having her photo taken, hence her natural take! So because I love the realistic, natural style of this pic, I decided to paint her just as she is. It is a beautiful contrast to the guy at front with the adorable grin on his face, he was really taken by the camera!!!
