Description

The wildlife of Africa are a constant source of artisitc inspiration for me...and the elegant giraffe has to be the most photogenic, with her beautiful large melting eyes.
In this portrait, the giraffe is looking directly at the viewer. I have used a combination of rembrandt soft pastels and carbothello pastel pencils to create the soft effect.
The reference photo for this piece was supplied by the amazing wildlife photographer Billy Dodson.
