Zambezi Sunset

Impression Original Painted By

Julie A M Edwards

Medium: Windsor Newton Professional Acrylique on cotton canvas

The Zambezi is one of the most beautiful rivers in Africa, well known for its prolific wildlife and the traditional homes of many indigenous tribes who reside along it s banks.

I have traversed this river on foot, horseback and by 4×4, including working as a safari guide for alot of my life and know it well, including some good fishing spots alongs its banks.

The inspiration for this painting came from a photograph from my  special cousins Kingsley and Ria Edwards,  who kindly gave me permission to use for reference, as they lived and worked on the Zambezi. This picture really inspired me. Thank you so much.

I like to  go exploring normally on foot and take photographs with my eyes and camera, make sketches of things or to paint in situ. It’s good though to paint in your studio away from the wind and dust.

This region of the world has endless beautiful sunsets and every single one is always different never the same.

The Magnifcent Zambezi River!
