The painting depicts a portrait of an African girl viewed from the side, facing right of the canvas. The purple background with a large yellow circle surrounding the head, suggesting a setting sun. The girl is adorned with a three gold ring headband and gold matching neck rings, wearing a circular patterned shirt. The colours and lighting are subdued evoking a sense of time standing still. The painting has a strong focus on capturing the subject's unique features and cultural elements. The use of colour, particularly the contrasting purple and yellow, adds visual interest and creates a sense of atmoshere. The subdued colours and lighting contribute to the overall mood of the painting enhancing the feeling of stillness and contemplation. The large white earring suprises you with it's size and bright whiteness in contrast to the other use of colour. It suddenly captures the viewer's eyes onto the painting. The medium is oil on canvas.
