I was very honoured to have this piece as a finalist in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2019 exhibition, at the Mall galleries. The reference image for this work came from some time spent in Addo Elephant National Park, famed, unsurprisingly, for its elephants.
We watched as the herd was led away from a waterhole and I rather liked the change of perspective. This allowed me to focus on the wonderful texture of the skins rather than their unmistakable faces. Although you are never in doubt as to what animal you are looking at. The jungle book style, single file leading off, fading into the distance, although not intentional when conceptualising the piece, I think works well. It speaks to the plight of these magnificent creatures, who, without our help, will slowly fade into extinction.
The original is still up for grabs at the Dolphin Gallery in Wantage. If you would like more details please drop me a message via the contact page. As with all my works, 30% of the profits from this work and prints sold will go to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to fund vital conservation work across Africa and Asia
