This work portrays a 'Mock Charge' by an Elephant Bull in the Chobe Reserve in Botswana where the artist lives and works for the past 23 years.
It is a magnificent piece done in high quality art materials and employs the 'Indirect Painting' method using numerous layers of Glazes and Scumbles to achieve the depth and luminance that truly captures the atmosphere of the scene.
Dane is a professional artist of 35 years experience and does mostly commissions. This piece is one of a few to come off the easel that is available for sale and is the ideal focal point for a Corporate location, Boardroom or Hunter's Trophy room.
Dane is intimately associated with the Botswana scenery and has an ability to capture the essence and atmosphere in a unique manner.
The painting can be shipped unframed and re-framed at the destination to limit possible damage in transit.
