Elephant Walk: Triptych (Acrylic on Canvas 183x76cm /72x30 inches)





Hi all,

Yes I know my posting has been a little hmm, erratic of late but please guys…don’t take me to task as I have been slaving away to produce all manner of creative goodies such as the one you see here!

Let’s call it a reawakening of my ethnic period!

OK so I’m pretty smug about Elephant Walk. It started as a commission by somebody who wanted a variation of one of my other pieces Journeys End plus elephants (I so love elephants) in a triptych format (as you do)


This was an absolute joy to paint. A chance to evoke everything I feel about Africa in a single image. Its visual beauty, nobility and sense of timeless wonder. Don’t you feel you could just walk up to those elephants and experience that sunset as another day fades on a faraway continent…ahh, we can but dream.

Catch you later
