Wildlife

Painting wildlife has always been one of my passions . It’s great seeing the animal gradually come to life on the canvas and trying to capture some of it’s character and beauty.

In August 2014 I joined a small painting and photography group on a safari to the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It was a magical experience and we were lucky enough to have encounters with leopards, a cheetah and her two cubs, two male lions, giraffes, elephants, zebra, kudu, impallas, and over a hundred different varieties of birds. In July 2015 I returned and again had an amazing safari. This time we had five sightings of a leopard and came upon a lion kill-they had killed two buffalo in the night and the pride were guarding the kills next to a waterhole. This time the safari finished at Victoria Falls– an unforgettable sight! The thousands of photos I brought back has enabled me to produce a number of new wildlife paintings with a better appreciation of the landscape , flora and colours. If you would like to see a film of our safari in 2014 go to YouTube–Mauricio Anton and click on Drawing the Big Cats 2014.
