High In The sky

by Angeline Rijkeboer
(Blaricum, the Netherlands)

New painting in a series of wildlife.

It's acrylic on canvas, 60x60 cm. I saw a photograph of this giraffe with his damaged horn and I decided to paint it.

I made the background blue, so that it really looks as if the giraffe is 'high in the sky', and the blue sky also makes the painting more colorfull.

Great Work!
by: Betty R

Its like you really captured his thoughts. I love the softness of the areas around his face and horns. The movement of his neck is wonderful. I could reach out and touch him.
Wonderful!

Marvelous!!
by: Aaron Haah

I like the expression the giraffe has and the texture of the coat. The coat is very well expressed and I don't know what to say about it. I can feel the fur in my imagination. The eyes look beautiful and I just want to pet him on the head. Excellent work!!
