South African singer and civil rights activist.
Makeba died of a heart attack on 9 November 2008 after performing in a concert in Italy organised to support writer Roberto Saviano in his stand against the Camorra, a mafia-like organisation local to the region of Campania.

I hope you enjoy my tribute.

Yeah, I totally agree with you, she was a great woman and a wonderful artist. You don't need to thank me. I would like to thank you for appreciating my work. In addition to this, it's always a good thing meeting people with good taste in music.

Yeah! :shakefist: I've finally got my personal English trainer. A new path to proficiency open in front of me. I pick my notebook.
- uplifting: got it, is something like inspired and social engagé (french)
- aesthetic: got it, in italian "estetico" from ancient Greek "aisthanomai"...
- paying compliment: ok

I'm very happy you think so! It was a very fast drawing, not so studied, I hope this gives freshness and a feeling of "african-jazzy" impromptu to the result.
Thank you my dear friend!!!

You are welcome! :) (Smile) And yes, it gives feeling of Africa and jazz origin Nod Intense, but very natural colours, audacious palette, but it's very organic with her expression! Sometimes in fast drawings artist may catch the main mood, and the result looks great! :) (Smile)

Cotanta bellezza mi disorienta! Grande ritratto di grande donna! Ma la traccia a matita l'hai fatta? perché sembra uscito già adulto, senza fatica, ma non è possibile! PATA PATA!

Wow! Disorientare con la bellezza è un grande risultato! Sono onorato! Grazie per le gentilissime parole! D'accordo con te, grande donna e grande artista! In effetti il disegno è uscito già adulto, una leggera traccia a matita per i tratti del viso e tanta improvvisazione per il resto. Volevo qualcosa di fresco e gioioso, come lei, non costretto in strutture rigide e stabilite a priori. Grazie ancora!!! :hug:

L'hai fatto con una traccia minima: allora è vero che sei un mago del ritratto ;)
Non c'è proprio di che. E lei si meritava il tuo omaggio!
