I am thrilled to present three of my sketches that are being auctioned off for the charity “Explorers Against Extinction“.
This is a charity that does so much work in helping protect Endangered Species in Africa. Please support them by placing a bit on one of my original pieces of artwork.
You can place your bid on your favourite piece by following the links below:
Southern White Rhino - Lot 55
I have painted several rhinos in the past but felt this image of this magnificent gentle giant that my daughter photographed in Matopas National Park, Zimbabwe of a Southern White Rhino was perfect. It showed him off to perfection as he ambled slowly towards her munching the grass as he went.
Old Timer - Lot 73
I have always loved elephants and get a thrill every time I see one in the wild. Although the image I used was not mine but my daughter’s where she encountered him at Crooks Corner, South Africa. This majestic Old Bull had obviously had an amazing life wandering the plains of Africa with only one beautiful tusk and a paralysed ear.
Punk Pride Lion - Lot 20
The males of the Punk Pride of Lions immediately sprang to mind. We had spotted the Pride of 19 lions made up of Adults and cubs on an early morning Game Drive in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. The males have a very distinctive mane that looks just like a “punk hairstyle” hence the title of “Punk Pride”. This wonderful Pride of Lions had recently been featured in a television documentary.
My sketch is of one of the Punk Pride males relaxing in the early morning sunshine and is featured on the Banner for the Silent Auction and is Lot number 20.
