Mount Roraima

I finally managed to complete a painting of Mount Roraima. It was a calming experience during this challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mount Roraima is the highest of the Pakaraima chain of tepui plateaus in South America. Mount Roraima, a massive tepui (table-top mountain), lies on the Guyana Shield and its sandstone cliffs ride straight up from the lush rainforests all around. It is situated on the border of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. Most of this mountain falls in Venezuela’s territory.

Some years ago when I visited Guyana to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Independence I made sure to check out the Amazon region and hopefully take pictures of Mount Roraima. However, I only had access to an aerial view from an airplane hence the pictures I took did not capture the elegance and beauty of this wonderful natural landmark. I relied on a range of Mount Roraima images accessible online to create my painting. Capturing an image of this stunning landmark in a painting was finally achieved.
