This portrait of the great Chief was deeply inspired by my interest in native wisdom. I worked from a black & 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 achieved . The painting took 3 months to complete.
