Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal on Paper.

A high-contrast, high-detail, charcoal drawing of a sprinbok's pronk. One of the most spectacular events in the Southern African desert and semi-desert.

This stiff-legged, bushy-tailed jump is done to ward of predators and to attract females when love is in the air.

I've been wanting to draw this phenomenon for a while now but could never quite find the right composition. This one is perfect. I love the tension, the dynamic line and pregnant white space in front of it.
