I finally pushed myself again. The house was quiet, so I took a moment and said to myself: No judgement, just draw.
So I opened by box of photos from Mali for inspiration and found a man from Timbuktu pouring tea.
Cultural side notes:
1) Tamasheq (Tuareg) men cover their mouths as a sign of respect.
(Women do not cover as a cultural requirement)
2) The Tamasheq people are also know as the Blue People due to their deep blue indigo garments tinting their skin.
