Dik Diks By Robert Bateman
I have always been attracted to intimate scenes - a few square yards of seemingly ordinary field, forest floor or scrubland, which are filled with variety and complexity if you look carefully. The dik-diks are small, the smallest of African antelopes, only about twelve inches high. You can see the scale of the painting by the relative size of the elephant dung, a typical feature of dik-dik habitat, as are the different grasses and bushes and the volcanic rock. The dik-diks are attractive animals to look at and to paint. They resemble tremendously condensed high-strung racehorses. Every muscle shows, and their anatomy and bone structure seem very tight and interlocked. They are exceptionally nervous and you usually see them either in a freeze position or else springing out of sight. - Robert Bateman
