I definitely wanted to revisit cultures today. Last week was difficult for me because I'm really not inspired by nature as much as culture and travel.
So, this week, I chose another place, the Sudan. This is Africa's largest country and probably the one racked by the most pain. But, before the war and hate began there was an ancient civilization that left its mark on the Sudan.
I couldn't really find a photo that had all of the deep browns, blacks and chalky oranges that Margie called for, so I gathered a few pictures together and some color swatches.
The first is a photo of the ruins left by the ancient Cush people of Sudan.
The deep red mud color of this mosque is also part of Margie's palette.
Behind it all, Margie has a deep brown that is the depth of the land. The dress of these little boys is almost perfect for this challenge.
I pulled some colors that you could use.
