My portrait of Comandante Ramona is finally done! The quote is from her 1996 Address at El Zocalo in Mexico City (translation mine):
“We want a Mexico that acknowledges us as human beings, that respects and recognizes our dignity.
Because of this, we want to join our small Zapatista voice with the big voice of everybody who fights for a new Mexico.
We have come this far to declare with everybody, the not anymores, that never again a Mexico without us.”
Took me a few weeks of procrastinating but I’m a bit proud if it since it was my first acrylic painting after a nearly 6 year break.
The eyes were the hardest part, but learned a few things about mixing, using colors, and proportions :D.
