Serengeti 2 - Acrylic on 16" x 20" x 1.5" gallery wrap canvas - $350
This is the second painting in my Serengeti series. While painting this, I kept thinking about the movie, "Out of Africa" and how beautiful it is there.
This was such a fun series to paint because the colors are a complete departure from my normally "cool" color palette. The art association I'm a member of and where I have a gallery studio has a new challenge for local artists each month.
August's theme was the Serengeti of Africa. This series was created from a sunset photo of the Serengeti plains. I used hot colors like red, orange and yellow along with black inspired by the trees against the red sky. I have drips of color going both ways, and that created a texture somewhat like alligator skin.
