Pot of Africa

I have been working on a commission. This is a large Ginger Jar and the request has been that it must be about Africa, the very essence of Africa. Oh what a tall order and what a lot of preparation time I have used up to get this one right.

Here you see the piece after 5 days of painting, it was a 5 day build and over a month in the drawings and planning. It has to be finished by the 5th of October!
