Going Wild On Safari
African Safari Field Research Trip. Steve is back in the studio after his mind boggling South African safari late last year and is now head down and bum up bringing the whole awesome wildlife experience to life on the easel.
Steve had been planning this trip for many years and spent three solid weeks actually living out in bush camps observing, sketching and photographing the magnificent African wildlife.
Steve (as those who know him can testify) works very much with the intimate field experience. His latest work shows his interest in African species has always been very strong and the studio artwork resulting from the Africa time is absolutley awesome in its power as befits the presence of magnificent animals such as elephant, leopard, lion, rhino and cheetah.
The occurance of large herds of big wild mammals has proven to be a strong motivation for Steve to attack large works portraying those same herds and the sheer spectacle of numbers.
He is already planning his next research trip to other parts of Africa.
