Golden Africa

Audrey Smith's avatar Audrey Smith

My series, Golden Africa, includes three paintings that I would love to share in ArtPrize. Golden Africa includes African animals painted in my own unique way. The sketch of the zebras show the third painting I am working on and will have finished in time for ArtPrize. I love to use gold leaf as my main background. The paint I use for the animals is acrylic, and I use charcoal for the outlines of my animals. I am fascinated by African animals and love capturing their beauty and spirit in a painting. My idea with the paintings of African animals is to try to help save animals in Africa from going extinct because of poachers. I would love to one day visit Africa or maybe live in Africa or just travel to places in Africa and study and draw African animals.
