Elephant Back sketching

by Heidi on April 26, 2012

Thank you Paul for sending me this great picture of Mary-Anne elephant-back sketching (does that count as ‘extreme sketching’, I think sketching from a moving a tuk tuk might?) during Tiger orange & peacock blue the April Art Safari to India 2012.

Mary-Anne is now in Namibia for Rainbows in the dunes.   In Etosha National Park this year Art Safari guests have been privileged to see 8 rhino, which are a wonderful subject for sketching, many lions and many, many zebra, amongst all the other incredible wildlife and fascinating birds.  The group will spend this morning in the ruggedly beautiful region of Damaraland (home to desert adapted elephants) viewing ancient rock engravings,.  This is one of the world’s most extraordinary and spiritual galleries, in a stunning valley flanked by the slopes of a sandstone table mountain. 

Safari Guide Elvis will be keeping a sharp eye out for meerkats this afternoon, as the group travel towards Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast.  Tonight Mary-Anne and her guests will fall asleep to the sound of the Atlantic Ocean.

PS Mary-Anne if you are reading this, it’s gloomy and drizzling in Suffolk today and I have eaten all our chocolate (and it’s only 12:20!)

Sending in the picture was the least I could do for such a wonderful trip.

India is such an amazing destination and so different from the usual Art Safaris in Africa. It’s been 2 weeks since we got back and I’m still trying to take in all we saw. The sights, food and company were great, though I could have done with fewer smells 🙂
