Queen of Wakanda
by Odera Igbokwe
Each day of Black History Month, I have been posting a small original in my shop in honor of the past, present, and Afro-futurism. Today is a small portrait of Queen Ramonda from Black Panther (2018) as played by Angela Bassett.
This was created with Acryla Gouache on arches watercolor paper, mounted onto cradled wooden panel
6 x 8 inches
