Savuti Bull 18" x 14" oil on canvas

This is my latest completed oil painting and the first time ive ever painted an elephant! Ive drawn so many elephants but never really felt (until now) that my oil painting skills were up to the job to portray an elephant in colour.I am very pleased with my first attempt and hope it will prove to be the first of many African paintings.As with earlier drawings this painting is based on an encounter in Savuti marsh,Chobe,Botswana in 2014.This big bull was part of a small group of bachelor males feeding on marsh grass,pausing occasionally to throw fresh,wet mud onto themselves.I hope you like the painting and as usual the original will appear on my website www.clivemeredithart.weebly.com in due course.
