Hi there! I was really enjoying the way the Chinese headdress painting came out, looking to other ethnic headdresses for inspiration, I thought of Japanese Geishas.  The hair pieces they wear are extremely elaborate works of art.  This painting is of a Maiko, the apprentice of a Geisha.  They have wilder hair pieces and more flamboyant robes.

This is the scanned image...

She has some metallic paint in her hair clips and robe.

I'm still meaning to do an Aztec one and perhaps an Incan one...Stay tuned.

    i like that your work could just pop up in a graphic novel or comic book. all of the girls have that "feel" to them. it surely is what you were meant to do. is that making sense?? love them.
