portrait of two lesser kudus was taken from a real life experience.
In 1988 while visiting Meru Park in Kenya, Bateman and his family came
upon this exact scene. Kudus are usually very elusive and skittish
animals. Their preferred habitat of thickets and acacia scrub makes
getting close to them a rare occurrence. In this painting Bateman
sought to recapture that moment when he first saw the kudus, including the
soft browns and greys of the animals and the gentle slanting light that
played over the whole scene.
