I am not a artist but my daughter is.
My avetar of the Chameleon is a computer drawing by her.
She is also starting to do some wildlife art.

I will try to get some on the web where you can see it.

Wow Oumie! I'm really impressed. I do fabric painting too, and I would never had thought to put all those different designs together - love the colours of the flag in the traditional tribal design, with the bushman painting effect and the zebra stripes all in between. I would have thought it would be too busy, but it works really well.

Thanks Cath,
I also thought that it was going to be too busy, but I trusted my teacher and carried on with the cloth. When the black border was put on then it all came together :D
On Saturday we are going to paint the Helmeted Guineafowls :)
Reservation made for April and May :D

Maybe time to advertise my mothers website.... :D
It is not only Kruger art, but a lot of it is inspired by their visits.
Have a look at her site.

Psst: CD is taken already. Clever Dog...

Awesome stuff from everyone that's shown their work so far.

Nico, what do you predominantly work in - oils/acrylics?

I'm starting my first wildlife oil painting tonight (of a bataleur feeding on a civet - a pic I took in 2000) - I've done the basic sketching on the canvas and now very excited. The canvas is around 1m20 x 1m40.

I've generally just drawn (pen or pencil) before. I'm still finishing off a leopard that I started in 2001 :redface:

If anyone's interested i'll put some pics up on here. But otherwise, keep the passion showing through your work people & don't be afraid to share your progress here.

I'd be interested to hear of people's favourite spots in sanp's if you have any. Quick sketches of flowers/scenes etc in camps are always nice - very relaxing!
