More about Cheyenne War Paint

A painting like Cheyenne War Paint is ultimately about expression. While the Cheyenne warrior depicted here is the central figure, the real focus is his face. What emotions and concerns are on his mind? What is his real focus? I want the viewer to look at this piece and decide for themselves.

Notice the background compared to the Cheyenne warrior: It creates a strong contrast based on complementary colors. The direction the warrior looks in is also the source of the wind—take note of how his hair is blown back from his face. He is adorned with magpie feathers, abalone shell earrings, and a blue trade shirt.

This image was inspired by Catlin and Bodmer paintings.
