As quoted by Ruth: ” I was inspired to paint these elephants when taking a day safari to Shimba Hills Reserve near the coast south of Mombasa in Kenya. We had taken a lunch break at Shimba Hills Lodge, which like Treetop is built up on stilts beside a man-made waterhole. Noticing a Fish Eagle, we waited and then it swooped down taking some bread between its talons. A little later, a small family of forest elephants came out of the trees heading towards the sugar cane sticks which had been hung down from the viewing platform. It was such a magical experience. I created a monochrome background with the elephants and I used watercolours to highlight the Fish Eagle in the foreground.”
