Wildlife

Painting wildlife has always been one of my passions . It’s great seeing the animal gradually come to life on the canvas . The aim being to capture 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 a huge variety of animals and birds. Among these were leopards, a cheetah and her two cubs, two male lions, giraffes, elephants, zebra, kudu and  impalas. Also a huge variety of beautiful birds. In July 2015  and 2017 I returned and again had some amazing encounters . On these safaris  we again saw lions, African Wild Dogs, leopards, and a memorable encounter with four lionesses and their twelve cubs!  The safari in 2017 finished at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe– an unforgettable sight! The thousands of photos I brought back has enabled me to produce a number of new wildlife paintings . This has given me 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.
