    "African Painted Dog".  What inspired me to draw and paint this beautiful creature in Scratchboard was that the simplicity of line drawing, which captured the soul of the wild dog, ensuring the magic of the animal is not lost.  

    The African Painted Wild Dog is now critically endangered, are some of Africa's lesser known animals and certainly very misunderstood.  They are the fastest and best hunters in Africa.  They are only now found in the South and East of Africa which is very dramatic for these animals, as they once roamed most of the Africa.  Their future lies with the conservation of the species and the tireless work of the rangers to save the few left in the wild.

    This Paint lives in safety in the open range Zoo in Melbourne Australia.  Scratchboard & Ink 11x14 inches by artist Jan Lowe.

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!


    This really speaks to me. Well done!
