An exceptional watercolour artwork titled Elephant Herd by South African wildlife artist Sue Dickinson. The artwork depicts a herd of elephants on the move with the baby elephants in the middle of the herd, protected by the older elephants and the matriarch. This painting is now available as a limited edition fine art print.
All elephants are herd animals with a very definite social structure. The herds are led by a matriarch, usually the oldest female, and are made up of daughters, sisters and their offspring. Male elephants stay with the herd through adolescence and then move away as they grow older.
The composition of each artwork is critical, based upon the law of proportion known as the "Golden Mean" - an aesthetic principle used by the ancient Greeks. Focusing on the animal itself, Sue’s experience has taught her that "what you leave out is just as important as what you put in". To this end, you will notice the purposeful and very impactful negative space surrounding each of her artworks. Her stark, clean images concentrate exclusively on the animal and convey the wide-open spaces of Africa.
