Artist Peter Stewart – based in Durban, South Africa – got hold of me a few months back, asking if he could paint some of my photos. He was interested in these two photos that I took in 2012 of charging elephants in the northern Kruger National Park, near the Levuvhu River. (You can read about this area in my blog here.)
Anyway, I sent the photos to Peter, and he created a superb painting, using elements from both photos. I really love this painting – look at the dust and the tones of dry bushveld. The sense of place is very realistic…I love that baobab tree in the background! Check out his Facebook page here if you want to see more of his superb work, or email him at email@example.com.
