50% of the proceeds of this work will go to The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

Award winning work in the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022 competition, with this submission I won 'The Art of Survival' Award.

CEO at DSWF, Georgina Lamb, commented: “Through his Art4Conservation platform Detlef continues to amaze and inspire wildlife artists to do their bit and to positively contribute to the species they capture through their art. His vibrant and lively style captivates buyers from around the world and he has built a loyal following as a result of his talent and personality. Detlef channels the proceeds raised from his art sales back into conservation initiatives. A true wildlife warrior who is one of the most passionate, generous, and dedicated wildlife artists and conservation friends we are proud to know here at DSWF. We are thrilled to celebrate his success and the good he chooses to use his art to achieve”.  

The painting is portraying a scene of rare West African Crocodiles on the Tinga river bank in Zakouma National Park in Chad based on real life experiences in 2021. Each day, multiple fish eating crocs would rest on the bank near the bush camp. Sitting down sketching them until sunset and being surrounded by birds and other wildlife was a feeling I had long missed. This artwork packs all of those memories.
