Nile Sunset

Nile Sunset

If you enter “African art” into Google’s image search function, you’ll see a lot of highly stylized paintings with these faceless black silhouettes against a reddish-orange “sunset” background. I have no idea where that style originated, but I wanted to see how ancient Egypt would look if painted that way. So, here’s the Pharaoh Hatshepsut gazing at the Pyramids from across the Nile in the so-called “African art” style.

Seriously, who invented that style anyway? It doesn’t look like any traditional African art form I know of.
