Steve Morvell Australian Wildlife Artist Charcoal engraving - painting African bull elephant
Mr Grumpy-African bull elephant
Medium: Coloured charcoal engraving, and drawing on board
Dimensions (centimeters):120 x 90
Description: Some days you just plain feel grumpy! Many African elephants are quiet and approachable but like all beings...they do have their off days. This grumpy bull was not in musth (that mating condition which often makes them unpredictable) but for some reason one look at the hire car was enough for him to launch into a full and sustained charge! An experience I will cherish for the rest of my life since its nice to have another species put a human in its place sometimes :)
