There seemed to many choices for 'H'... horses, Herefords, hippos but I chose to paint a Hornbill, a bird native to Africa and with a very special character that sets it apart from the hundreds of birds it shares the savannah with. They are a large bird and mainly forage on the ground, hence their name of Southern Ground Hornbill. I took this photo on my recent trip to Tanzania whilst in the Serengeti. This is an oil study at 6" x 8" oil on gessoed board.
