Gentle Giant - African Elephant stood at close quarters by Susan Shimeld
  Gentle Giant  (2004)
Subject: African Elephant stood at close quarters
Dimensions (centimeters): 47 x 33
Medium: Graphite
Description: Elephants are one of my most favourite mammals. Gentle, strong, intelligent and tactile are just a few of the words to describe this beautiful African gentle giant.

The elephant is inextricably linked with his surroundings and the survival of so many other species.

My pencil portrait of an elephant was portrayed from a photograph taken in Etosha National Park, Namibia by Andrew Watts. The elephant was in a long distance shot among other animals. I chose to portray my 'Gentle Giant' in pencil, black and white, and at close quarters, in order to convey his size and power.
