Zulu Dancers

One of the wonderful things about Africa, is the colour. The colour of the land, the sky, the mountains and the people. Colour vibrates in Africa - rich oranges, deep purples, the intense blue of the sky on a Summer's day and the inky black at night. And the people of Africa, both black and white, wear those colours like a badge.

The Kwa-Zulu Natal area is particularly rich in colour. The tropical vegetation and the damp heat bring out the most vibrant colours imaginable. This pastell of two Zulu dancers is typical of that richness.

Love your zulu dancers, they are so full of life and action. Pastel is always fun to work with
