Bushman rock painting (pastel) by Ron Wilson


This rock painting exists somewhere in a cave in South Africa. I am impressed by the directness of Bushman art generally and I used pastel to emulate this ancient hunter with his bow and arrow.  Many years ago I photographed the original rock painting.  To copy the image in 2020, I used soft pastel on the back of a cereal box, it has a nice tooth and takes pastel very well. Size about 9 x 12 inches. Available.
