Well I have many ideas for new paintings planned for the not too distant future, but next up on the easel is going to be a VERY challenging painting. I haven’t got a working title for it yet but it will be of the great migration, specifically the river crossing.
There’s going to be lots of wildebeest and zebra, plus giant croc’s of course :-o) just to add some more excitement.
Now the crossing has been painted a few times by other artists (although not that many, try doing a search) but what I’m planning for mine is going to be a little different. I’m going to concentrate on a real close view as the animals jump and thrash through the river in absolute fear of the croc’s.
The painting is going to have to be large to show the number of animals I think the scene needs and it’s also going to be very panoramic. So all in all it should be a real eye catcher if I can pull it off :-o)
I’ve already started mapping out the basic placement of a few of the animals, so watch this space for some images of the developing painting very soon.
