A Warmer side to Africa

I've been back for a while now, but as usual my blog has suffered while other more pressing things needed to be done.  And, as usual, I haven't been visiting anyone.  And it's cold in the computer room!

But I have been going to my watercolour classes and have desperately been painting for our annual selection day.  Even now I don't know whether what I have is going to be good enough - doubt raising its ugly head!  It won't be these as paintings done in a class are not eligible, but my watercolours are improving.  I thought I'd put these two together - the elephants and the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe - as Zim used to be home to great herds of these amazing animals.



Will try and visit soon, but thanks to everyone for keeping me going.

Elephants are one of my favorite animals. Love the painting. I have several in my bedroom for a wildlife artist show here a few years back. That would be paintngs not elephants!

These are beautiful, Liz. I too, love the falls, you really captured the feel of water free-falling. Also was very impressed by your earlier posts, especially the portraits. You may not be painting on a daily basis any more, but your work has grown fabulously!

Memórias de África. Lindo! Pintar temas africanos é uma paixão. Seu blog é talentoso. Parabéns. Também estou a acabar um quadro com elefantes. De Angola, aqui ao pé, vai o meu cumprimento.
