This portrait of the great Chief was deeply inspired by my interest in native wisdom. I worked from a black and white reference picture, which I translated into colour. I mainly used earth pigments in my Palette of colours. The main area of focus was the face & feathers. Capturing the spirit of crazy horse was of paramount importance which I feel I have achieved. The painting took three months to complete.
