Here a seated woman in a strapless African-print dress holds up and kisses her baby, their features captured in amazing detail.
One such painting is How Does the Silent Queen Find the Light, which shows the back of a woman carrying a baby in a traditional animal hide baby carrier.
Once again, the details are impeccable such as the thick fur of the baby carrier, the folds of the woman’s headdress, brass bracelets, amulets and her patterned skirt.
Also among the blue pen works is an illustration called Again where a happy child is holding a narrow wooden plank, which reference back to the children’s portraits that Karimwabo is known for.
It is the first semi-realistic nature painting Karimwabo has done but he does not plan to continue in this line.
