This may be my last post for a few weeks as I head back to the rigs in the Niger Delta for a tour.
The picture was done using pastels and coloured pencil on 180 Gsm Strathmore pastel paper. It has been fun drawing over the last five weeks.

Your elephants are always a delight.
I «envy» you for being abble to see such nature in person. Only who lives in Africa can understand it's beauty.
I hope to go there some day. I've seen photos from Tanzania and Congo and they're great.
I bet you've been to Krugger's (sp?) park. How is it ?

Fantastic work! Elephants are such fascinating critters and you've done a splendid job with this. I like the way you used both pastels and colored pencils...the best of both!
