About the Artist
Warren Cary, based locally in Hoedspruit, is a well-known and celebrated South African artist. His art is a reflection of his surroundings. Warren specialises in drawing the amazing nature and wildlife of the Kruger National Park that he is so passionate about.
His love for fauna and flora is reflected in the detail of the exceptional work he produces. His preferred mediums are pastel and graphite pencil.
WHAT DOES THE ART SAFARI CONSIST OF?
There are two options for your Kings Camp Art Safari:
OPTION 1: Daily 3 hour sessions are undertaken in a “studio environment” at the lodge. Warren will guide you through pencil techniques, textures in nature, tonal changes, perspective, composition and focal points, and drawing exercises will be done with his guidance.
OPTION 2: There would be a game vehicle dedicated for Art Safari guests where you will have your own guide and tracker. Warren would be with you on the drives where he will guide you in observing the many elements of the bush in a different way: from the wildlife and flora, to different spots and landscapes of particular beauty and interest. He will discuss things such as the light and the role it plays on the different subjects. These game drives with be followed by the 3 hour workshops back at the lodge (as per option 1).
All art materials are supplied to the guest by Faber-Castell and Warren Cary Wildlife Gallery.
Please note that this does require a certain level of skill and interest.
