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. 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 an elephant and emailed it to me. They thought I might like to use it as a resource photo for a painting of an African elephant. And they were right! I liked it so much that I painted it.

Some Interesting Facts About African Elephants

African elephants are native to Africa and are the world’s largest land animals. They are distinguished by their massive flapping ears and ivory tusks. The fact that these animals are hunted for their ivory tusks and that their natural habitat is shrinking has contributed to their inclusion on the endangered species list. They are, in fact, one of Africa’s most endangered species. In the 1980s, around 1 million African elephants roamed Africa’s plains; today, the total population is less than 470,000.
