African Tuareg girl painted in acrylic on A4 canvas. My first painting since my shoulder operation. Felt sooooooo good!
The Tuareg people are a predominantly nomadic people of the Sahara Desert, mostly found in the northern reaches of Mali near Timbuktu and Kidal. The Tuareg are often referred to as "Blue Men of the desert " – because their robes are dyed indigo blue. They live in small tribes with between 30 and 100 family members and keep camels, goats, cattle and chicken which graze the land.
They are a proud race of people, famous for their fighting abilities and artwork, now staring urbanisation and resettlement in the face.
