New Elephant Painting – On The Easel (WIP)

I’ve been working on a great elephant painting the past couple of weeks. It’s from a scene I witnessed in Botswana on the outskirts of the Okavango.

The painting shows the soil in Moremi (Botswana) at the end of the dry season, the remnants of grasses are only existing as they are quite close to the river, but even then, with temperatures in the shade reaching 40’C + it really is extremely dry, and just 100 yards from the river virtually no vegetation survives. The seeds however, are remaining dormant, waiting for the 1st rains to come, before miraculously turning Moremi green.

It’s amazing how elephants, as huge as they are, survive this hostile environment, the trees however sometimes get completely devestated as the dryseason continues and they are taken to pieces by very hungry elephants.

Hope you enjoy the following step by steps – Painting now complete and SOLD.
