Beautiful Black Woman by Tyleen Beautiful Black Woman by Tyleen
I was watching T.V and seen a african woman with a wrap on her head and i thought to myself she is absolutly gorgeous. Then when i thought about it, i think all african woman i see, on t.v, walking around, at school or at work, that wear those head wraps are just beautiful. I really like the way they look and it really emphasizes the natural beauty of their face. And when their really colorful i think it makes their skin just pop. So i painted this. I used no reference what so ever for this other than i see beautiful black women everywhere so im blessed with my memory to work from.

Hope you guys enjoy. Went for a semi-realistic look. Painted it tonal with black and white then added color afterwards.

She's very beautiful! Her lips/facial structure remind me of Sanaa Lathan.

Awww I love the comment you've made ^_^ The artwork is breathtaking. I almost feel like you've sculpted her from your own hands when I look at her. You really grasped something I can't describe...turning this one into print wouldn't be a bad idea ^_^ hehe Again, excellent work and I love the idea/comment behind the work :D

This is so beautiful and divine! I love it, and your description of how you thought of it. I feel the same way when I see many of them in Africa and everywhere.

And I HAVE to point out her expression, it's like a mix of confidence, yet sadness; I think it really represents the black woman of today and how they so often feel and are treated. A testament to it.

Thank you for the compliment.
I like your interpretation of her expression. Its strong and meaningful and that's how she looks and feels to me as well. This woman was meant to be strong and wise. People look up to her.

this is beautiful. I love the detailing in the head wrap, and the deep solemnness of her face. Also, I agree with you completely.

Due to the high levels of "sheer, concentrated, awesome" contained in this picture, I'm actually having quite a difficult time trying to be articulate, when it comes to expressing just how much I like this!

Thanks Matt, Glad you like the color. i wanted to go a bit muted on this one and let her stand out and not the color over power her. And yea im a sucker for making the eyes the main attraction ;)

Nah, I'm sure it's fine for other people c:
My monitor's just a really crappy LCD, so darker colours end up getting merged together for me xP
It's really annoying when I'm watching something online and they have a night scene Dx
