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.

African Elephant charging
 African Elephant charging

 Chris’s description of this drawing based on his experiences in Africa.

A typical show of bravado from a young elephant, full of libido, who breaks out of the family herd moving unconcernedly off a waterhole to charge a supposed adversary, maybe an encroaching Kudu or perhaps a safari vehicle full of camera clicking tourists.  In this case his bravado is short-lived as this enlarged beast, ears outstretched, comes to a sudden halt only to mockingly turn-tail and run back to the safety of the herd.  The knowledgeable driver leans back unmoving and chuckles after warning his passengers to remain silent and still.

 More of Chris’s adventures can be read on our web site under the “Newsletters” page.
