Rhino in the rain' will be an abstract painting that depicts my interpretation of the majestic Black Rhino as it roams freely during Africa's wet season. The artwork will creatively blend and smear colours on the Rhino sculpture using water and acrylic paint. The artwork aims to poetically evoke the natural habitat of the Rhino and raise awareness about habitat loss being a contributing factor in the decline of Rhino population numbers.
