Guna portrait - The Guna people of Panama and Colombia are a fascinating tribe with a long and rich history, they also produce some of the most visually impressive textile designs I have ever seen, they have a natural gift for the use of colour in surprising and striking combinations. This drawing is my way of studying some of these designs and traditions. In particular what I really liked are the traditional 'molas' - the fabric design which you can see covering the woman's midriff in the drawing.

This is a great gift option for those who love to travel in Latin America, Panama and Colombia, and for those interested in tradition and indigenous groups.

Image printed on Textured off white paper 250gsm - we like the feel of this paper type better as it works well with the textures applied to the image and gives a slightly softer feel. It resembles similar qualities to watercolour/artist sketchbook paper.

The drawing was done based upon a photo. The original was black and white pen drawings and the background texture was made using watercolours, finally, both were merged digitally and colours added to create the final piece.
