Cherokee Man Watercolor in Black and White 19 x 22 $ 395
I worked at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Archives in Albuquerque, New Mexico and received permission to use historical photographs donated to the Center's archives for my art work. I called this the Cherokee Man because he is wearing a turban. When the Cherokee men were taken to England they wore turbans like the Indians from India because the British were frighten of the tattoos and hair locks of the Cherokee. The British had seen the Indians from India and were familiar with the turbans and different dress of the men.
I used black and white for the series I painted. The black has red mixed into it to make the black richer. Some of the paintings of the series had a more sepia tone.
