Watercolour Portraiture and Papua New Guinea
November 23, 2014 § Leave a comment
The recent Melanesian Festival of Art and Culture was a fantastic opportunity for all to see Melanesian culture in all its vibrant colour. While it never reached the intensity of the famous festivals of Goroka or Mt Hagen, the 11 day MFAC gave the viewer a longer period of time to take it all in. Sing-sing groups and craft workers from all over Melanesia spent the duration of the festival displaying traditional dance, song, and a way of life that is quickly becoming part of history.
It was a golden opportunity for Emily to put watercolour to paper and produce some exquisite portraiture.
