This painting depicts a hunting scene whereby two hunters attempt to sneak up on a jackal and a baby giraffe. The scene may involve rainmaking, as giraffes are considered to be important rain animals. I love the highly textured creased look created in this painting. It really gives you the impression of walking on mounds of earth. I began by crushing the printmaking paper in water and then drying it. Once flattened, I painted one light color acrylic color and let it dry. I then rolled paint onto the surface attempting to capture just the top folds of the paper. The central image was created on delicatessen paper which has a wonderful color receptivity.
MEDIA: Acrylics on printmaking and rice paper
