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.
