Eland Antelope Study.

I don’t often paint eland, so with a recent order I felt the need to do some drawings before the final painting. It was quite an enjoyable exercise.

    These are lovely Barbara. You could frame the sketches as well as the painting as they are beautiful too.

      Thanks Sue, but nowadays, nothing gets a frame unless it is to go on exhibition 🙂 , everything goes into display folders.

    Hello Barbara,

    I am an interior designer. My name is Gretchen. I have a client who is from South Africa and we are interested in some eland art. Can you tell me how the process works and if you are interested in working with us?
