I like painting sharks. Always have. So when the Sharks won tonight’s Super Rugby semi-final against the Stormers, it was a lovely excuse for me to tackle one of my favourite subjects. Though I’ve put a Great White Shark in a Joburg swimming pool before (see the painting below, just sold to one of my friends who intends to hang it above his desk at work), I did enjoy the opportunity to portray Carcharodon carcharias in a more natural setting. The excuse to add a bit of red to the water was an added bonus.
