Acrylic on tripled primed / stretched medium grain cotton canvas (380 g/m) 'Disappearing' is an original Acrylic painting of the once widespread and formidable Black-Rhino of Africa. Bringing this beautiful subject to 'Life' has been a labor of love and pleasure. About 130hrs of work have gone into each individual painting. This was inspired by the immense vulnerable state this magnificent animal's population is in. Only being the second largest land animal next to the elephant, this species is classified as critically endangered (even though the South western Black Rhinoceros is classified as vulnerable). Three subspecies have been declared extinct, including the western Black rhinoceros. Which was declared extinct by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2011' A beautiful portrait of a rugged rhino full in his prime against what appears to be a misty background that serves as his cover over an open plain. His marvelous body full in detail and likeness, disappears lightly into the shading of the mist thus highlighting a curious yet focused gaze. The creator has used much skill in painting this marvelous animal over a background that causes it to gradually disappear into its natural sphere thus bringing an almost celestial look to sight.
