Gazelles

For this tranquil study of Gazelles, I used my new ’tiling’ technique. However, I used greater restraint in my brush-work, than seen before in work such as my ‘Grizzly Bear’. At first I was unsure, whether the ‘mosaic’ of brush-strokes used in this technique, would convey the graceful delicacy of the Gazelles. I needn’t have worried…

I also experimented with the tree here, using a muted palette to suggest a heat-haze or dust obscuring its branches. It’s an effect that gets even hazier when you get up to the canopy. I have painted very few African wildlife subjects to date. With that said, this was a satisfying work to complete and may inspire more from that region in the future…
