African Walk

African Walk 1

When I take photos of animals I also memorise a feeling that will help me later express a story in a picture. That’s why it’s important I am there and take the pics myself.

When I saw the photo that Nicola took in her South African trip,  I knew immediately that would become a painting.   Or two.

I actually made two, small yes, and quickly painted to stay effective. I watched them grow together, allowing them to become different…

Even though I didn’t take it myself, the photo conveys a powerful story and the composition is very effective. It proved very alive to me.

So I ‘borrowed’ it.
