Artist Comments

I was commissioned a few years ago to create a series of five commission paintings for a gentleman who loves Africa. (You can find those in “Past Work.”) They included the landscape and wildlife of Africa. I really enjoyed doing them as it made me feel like I was actually there on some kind of safari. Every now and then, I’ll do another painting on Africa and this is one of them. I hope you enjoy this zebra painting.

About this Painting of Giraffes

Title: African Wildlife — Three Giraffes
Size:
18″ w x 24″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A realistic composition of three giraffes on the open planes of the Serengeti. The adult giraffes are posing in a group with a blue sky overhead. Hand-painted and signed by Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

African Wildlife — Three Giraffes is one of several paintings I was commissioned to do for an art collector. My customer wanted to present this particular painting to his adult daughter as a Christmas gift since she loves giraffes.

I found this painting to be a challenging one since I had never painted giraffes before. Before putting my paintbrush to the canvas, I gave a lot of thought to how I would approach it. It required studying giraffes from every possible angle, paying special attention to their spots if you want to call them spots, that is. They are more like splotches. I observed that no two giraffes are identical in their “spots.” I also paid attention to the color of their splotches. Even though the giraffes are similar in color, I wanted each one to stand out, so I made the brown splotches slightly different in color for each giraffe.

After the painting was completed and delivered to my client’s home, he contacted me to tell me how much his daughter loved it.

Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A realistic African wildlife portrait of the leopard. The leopard is sitting in front of a camouflaged background. This painting is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

An art collector who is passionate about Africa commissioned this wildlife painting of a leopard. He wanted me to create a portrait of a leopard for his personal collection of African art. I composed this artwork using a reference photo provided by my client. It’s one of five paintings he commissioned from me. However, before I began working on this painting, I did some research about leopards. Here is a little of what I learned about this big cat.

About Leopards

Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars. They live in sub-Saharan Africa, northeast Africa, Central Asia, India, and China. They easily adapt to a wide variety of habitats, altitudes, and temperatures, from high mountains to deserts to rainforests. The largest of the species are named after the regions where they’re found, like the North African leopard and the Persian leopard. These big cats have a varied diet and enjoy different kinds of grub. They will eat bugs, fish, antelope, monkeys, rodents, deer; pretty much any prey that is available!

Artist Comments

This African elephant painting is the first one of five commission paintings I painted for a client who lives in San Diego, California. He first contacted me about another elephant painting that I had painted several years back called Raging African Elephant. Since that one had already sold, he commissioned me to do the one above. While I was working on this painting, this same client commissioned more paintings of Africa.

Some Interesting Facts About African Elephants

    • The word “elephant” comes from the Greek word “elephas,” meaning “ivory.”
    • Elephants are the largest of all land animals and have an average life span of 50 to 70 years. There are only two distinct types of elephants — African and Asian. Of these two varieties, African elephants are the largest. The African variety has larger ears than its Asian cousin. Their ears look like the African continent and are used to radiate heat away from their body. Asian elephant ears are smaller and rounded.
    • African elephants prefer to stay in herds of 12 to 20, and most of them live in the Savannah. Both the male and female African elephants grow tusks. They can grow to more than 12 feet tall and weigh up to about 7 tons (14,000 pounds).
    • Males are called bulls, females are cows, and a baby is called a calf. When a calf is born, it can weigh 200 pounds and stand 3 feet tall. Gestation is about 22 months. The females are highly social and take excellent care of their offspring.
