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!

The African Continent is  a diverse and beautiful wild place to explore, especially on foot or horseback.

World Heritage Sites claim a number of places along the Zambezi including the Victoria Falls, “Mosi Oa Tunya”, The Smoke That Thunders!

This commissioned impression was a challenging painting for me in the sense that water study had to be in great detail…. and how to capture the values and textures of the water falling. I enjoyed this painting experience and have spent many moments observing the falls in their great mighty flow, as the Zambezi River thunders into the basalt chasm below.

I invite you to follow my personal journey as I walk and paint
Africa.
