Inktober 11- “Baby African Elephant”– Finally have gotten started using my dip pens! I saw this baby elephant at the San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Park some years ago. I’v e also seen them in Kenya. They always make me think of that wonderful piece of music from “Hatari”, “Baby Elephant Walk”. Strathmore 300 vellum bristol, P. Soennecken Bremerburseneeder EF nib, Perle Noire ink.
Wait for Me! is a study of a baby elephant I saw in the Samburu in Kenya when on an art workshop/safari in October of 2004. The herd had crossed the river right in front of us and a couple of the “little” ones were hurrying to catch up with the adults, who were engaging in a morning dust bath. Click to bid here
