Re: Indian brave and maiden
I never have been good at painting people. Yes, I really would like some suggestions on how to "fix" the figures in this one. I take the suggestions that I receive here and re-do the painting, or apply what I have learned to future paintings.
Yes, the native Americans did wear headbands and feathers...and still do at the Pow-Wows. The maidens only wear one feather...it will be on the left side of the headband (near the heart) if they are looking for a mate, and it will be on the right side if they are already taken, and the older (mature) women wear the feather in the middle. I still go to Pow-Wows, and I wear my feather straight up in the middle, as I am a very mature woman...I'm 80 years old!
Thanks for your honest, and thoughtful, critique. I really do appreciate it!
