Sketch of a Tadjik Markhor Goat, April 17 Art Sketches Daily...



Here is a sketch of a tadjik markhor goat.  I saw this fellow during a recent visit to the Los Angeles Zoo and I was fascinated by his horns.  I'd like to give them to one of my Gothic maidens, but first I think I'd like to do a study of the animal itself.  This is based on one of the photographs I took while visiting the L.A. Zoo.  I've chosen another to sketch and once I've done that, I'll choose between them and decide which one to refine and potentially paint.  I might want to get my lamb painting in progress before I go too much further with this though...


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April.  This is day 17.

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

Nice sketch. The horns came out great. Animals are a real challenge for me to draw.

Awww, thanks so much! I've seen markhors before, but I don't think I can resist doing a painting of him at some point!
