Giraffe & Company

Of the giraffe subspecies, I think the Reticulated Giraffe is the most striking. The refined spots add to the drama of its patterned coat. By placing the giraffe in shadow, I was able to play with orange dappled light. I added the red-billed oxpeckers for scale, and well, for fun.
This original oil painting is 27" X 13.25".
