Title: Fulani Girl
Medium: Oils
Size: 40×50 cm
Surface: Hardboard

I have painted the Fulani Girl about 5 times all in, she is such a lovely image to try to capture. I have seem many other artists who have also chosen her to paint. I think it’s to do with the challenge of capturing her poise and beauty, the sensuality of her neck, the play of colour on her face, the ornamentation around her hair. The original photograph was in the National Geographic.
