A black diamond

I visualised this painting, A black diamond, in my head, memorising all the finer details in the hope that it would be a bold, immersive work, which viewers would be drawn to and enjoy. It celebrates the modern art and fashion of South Africa. I painted carefully, using dark colours and tried to ensure the best quality of light in order to make it stand out boldly. I particularly like using black, white and yellow and enjoyed painting with those three colours again.
