The Matriarch and Son

Matriarch & Son

The Matriarch and Son drawn by Chris with Graphite pencils.  I am sorry but the drawing will become very long when published, it is usually wider.

“I did this drawing for a special cousin who, when hearing that I was now drawing elephants, said she would love to have a sketch of an African elephant and calf.”
We went into a Limited Edition Reproduction Prints and the edition has now been sold out.  The only way to buy a print now is from a private collector.
This is the second African drawing after our trip to Africa in 1994 the passion continues 21 years later!  I will gradually re introduce Chris’s drawings to you.  He only draws about 4 to 5 drawings a year.  Please come and visit Chris in his Chris McClelland Gallery, 84 Lachlan Street, Hay, NSW Australia.  You will catch him drawing or teaching others to draw.
