Artist Comments

This painting was a commission painting I was asked to paint for an art collector.  My customer wanted to present it to his adult daughter as a Christmas gift. I found this painting to be a challenging one as I had never painted giraffes before. I put a lot of thought into how to approach it before putting paintbrush to canvas. It required studying giraffes from all different angles 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”. Nevertheless when the painting was completed and shipped to his residence, my customer contacted me to let me know his daughter loved it.

Artist Comments

This 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 have larger ears than their 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 the majority of them live on 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 extremely social and take very good care of their offspring.

Artist Comments

As an artist I’m always looking for good reference photos to paint from. Taking lots of photos myself is one way I get them. Others like to give me their photos to use as well. Using resources like this to paint from is something many artists do when they paint. Other artists like to paint on location, but will still take a photo of the scenery to take home with them. They use them to finish up their painting when they are back in their studio.

Several years ago some acquaintances of mine went on an African safari. While there, they snapped a photo of this elephant and emailed it to me. They thought I might like to use it as a resource photo for a painting. And they were right! I liked it so much I did this painting from it.

Some Interesting Facts About African Elephants

African elephants are native to Africa. They are characterized by having enormous flapping ears and ivory tusks. These magnificent creatures are the largest living land animal. Being hunted for their ivory tusks and their shrinking natural habitat have proven instrumental in these animals being placed on the endangered species list. Indeed, they are one of the most endangered species in all of Africa. In the 1980’s there were around 1 million African elephants roaming the plains of Africa, today the total population is less than 470,000.
