Cheetah”As an artist-naturalist my favorite place in the world to visit is Africa. And my favorite place in Africa is Lewa Downs. It is like dropping in on the Garden of Eden- the way the world used to be before modern man brought about wholesale destruction. Although many animals have been introduced, there is enough space for them to live their lives as they have always done in nature. This painting epitomizes this aspect of Lewa. The cheetah is an orphan cub that was raised to live wild and free and safe from human enemies. The landscape in the background is indicative of the great sense of endless, wide open space.” – Robert Bateman

Nature as a subject is becoming more and more popular as our environment is in peril. What better subject is there than the beautiful creatures we share this world with? Robert Bateman’s appreciation and understanding of nature are apparent in his paintings. He is able to paint flora and fauna the way your eye would perceive it in real life. It is important that the animal takes full attention. The background becomes muted, and therefore it doesn’t take too much focus away from the subject.
