Elephant Close up 2
Oil on stretched canvas
Size: 90 x 100 cm x 2cm
Painted from a photo taken while on safari in Thanda Game Reserve (South Africa). We encountered a huge heard of elephants on their way through the bush to a watering hole. This beautiful matriarch came past the game vehicle rather close by but seemed to be smiling at us. With the sunset glow highlighting the textures of her skin, I could not resist doing this painting.
Here is an “action” shot of the heard crossing in front of the game vehicle
