Two Giraffes

Two Giraffes

These two giraffes are made out of grass and come all the way from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. I fell in love with their vibrant colours and if ever I’ve had an idea in my head that would not disappear before I painted it – then it was these two giraffes. And its my first painting done from real objects.

I also played around with a technique using strips of cardboard to paint, instead of brushes. Needles to say my hands were covered in paint more than the canvas but it was great fun.

I have not names them yet so I am willing to part with them, but they might also in the near future become part of a series.
