Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is famous for its near omnipresent fog, which is created by the confluence of hot Namib Desert sands and cold Benguela Current waters that flow north from Antarctica.

When access to the big dune fields was cut off, play helped me find my way along the coastline.

Here’s a collection of recent iPhone sketches from Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.

It wasn’t surprising that I found many bones in Namibia’s Skeleton Coast Park. Sharing Henry Moore’s and Georgia O’Keefe’s fascination with bones I couldn’t resist making a number of sketches with my iPhone. Here’s a selection of them.

In the Wilderness Safari’s Skeleton Coast camp they name the elephants after the guides. The old male, Papa G, not wanting to scuffle with younger males, often walks alone far away from the herd. In musk he can become testy. Giraffes, oryx, baboons and people alike stay at a respectful distance. One evening, we followed Papa G from sunset to dusk, as he weaved his way out of a dry riverbed, across small dune fields, through clay playas, around small mountains that sheltered our camp, and to the water hole that lay close by.

namibiaform

Form can serve a lot of functions. One can be to take the eye on an exciting journey. Rectilinear? Curvilinear? Fast? Slow? Simple? Complex? They all have a unique character. Contrasting different types of form can intensify one another. You can do this in a single image or in multiple images. Then you can identify other ideas that aren’t represented – and go get more images.

Visit here tomorrow for more of my images from Namibia.
