The Red Girl

Original Drawing, Pastel and Conte on Fabriano Paper,
60 cm x 73 cm, © 2015 Lioda Conrad.

Part of the series "The Tourist Corps". This girl was an avid onlooker at all the proceedings around her. Her smile and almost knowing look was a pure delight. She is just a lovely and happy soul with nothing much to her name but her own happiness. She is one of the Ijaw of the Niger Delta where dry land is very scarce. To compensate for this, many Ijaw homes are built on stilts over creeks and swamps, with travel between them done by boat. Part of the series "The Tourist Corps".
