African Elephant Sunset


There is something about a sunset in the drier parts of Africa that makes it just a little bit more spectacular such as in Botswana. A contributing factor is probably related to the dusty atmosphere that catches and traps the warm evening light. What makes a sunset so special is that it happens only once a day and lasts just a few beautiful minutes. Some years ago when I was 16 I did a water colour painting of a sunset with elephants and palm trees .It turned out quite well and I did a few more including a large acrylic painting that I did on board. Since then I have done some more in oils, which have all sold. I have discovered that although other paintings may sit for some time in a gallery this is one subject that never has a problem getting sold. So here is my most recent painting of an African Elephant sunset .This painting is currently being displayed at 52 Main Street, Millerton,NY 12546,United States, at Lady Audreys Gallery
