this potrait has nothing to do with how Queen sheba look like,first of all she was,t black she was from Yemen,second of all she was not dark skin as this porttiat described her looks, u could google it and draw conclusion urself.

Thank you, Alanna, the beads took me a while but I think they were worth the time.

Guest's picture

She is gorgeous Ms. Rita, and those beads just pop out of the painting---Alanna

Thank you so much - glad you like her. I am thinking to do a real DARK woman, too Wink

Guest's picture

WOW! The pose, cheek bones and eyes, a striking reminder of Josephine Baker. I don't quite agree with one guest who said that she should be darker in color..........There are 32 shades of skin tones to Black skins ( FYI)

Thank you

Guest's picture

Nice try. But she needs to be much more darker.

Dénes, thank you - I thought also, she looks majestic.

Very well conceptualised. The beads and lashes give her the needed majestic look.

Art at its best.
