Elephants oil 24 x 36

Here's a new painting. I haven't decided on a title yet.It shows a mum elephant and baby in the Chobe river Botswana. The startled birds are White faced whistling ducks.

Beautiful Matt! I love it.

Hello from a fellow Brit,

Loved your work since I saw some up close in the Mall Galleries in London some years ago and I was wondering if it is possible for you to take some photos of a 'work in progress'? This would be so interesting and informative for those of us who are hoping to improve our painting.

Meanwhile I will keep studing how you do your 'magic'

Best wishes, Lesley

Great to hear from you Johnny. Glad you like my painting. I wish I could think of a title!!

Lesley anne,
Thank you for saying nice things about my paintings. I will definately take some photos showing how I build up my paintings. ( though this usually means the kiss of death to the painting I'm showing in progress!!)

Hello Wendy, how lovely to hear from you. I hope you are keeping well. Thanks for your comments. I remember that freezer well. We had a power cut which I discovered 3 weeks afterwards... Liquid Badger,Yuk
Still mom's Hydrangers have been terrific ever since.
