Fine art illustration of a Gaboon Viper (Bitis gabonica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Gaboon Viper drawing was completed on 10.12.2012. I had been meaning to draw this snake for several years – in fact I had received permission from the photographer Gavin Stern to make a drawing based on his photo back in 2007 – but as sometimes happens it got pushed to the back of the pile. But when I decided to create a collage of animals of the African Rainforest I realized I needed to add a snake to the group of animals, and the Gaboon Viper made a perfect addition.
