Desert Clowns.... that is what African Oryx or Gemsbok are sometimes referred to. It sparks a very distinctive impression, yet not one that I think fits with this elegant and adaptive antelope species which can be found in a variety of African landscapes including the Southern Bushveld, savannahs and even the extreme desert environment of Namibia's dune seas.


I have always loved these beauties. They are not large like Eland or Kudu, more the height of a Shetland pony, yet their extraordinary horns make up for their diminutive stature. They are beyond impressive, sometimes reaching lengths of over 40 inches!


I am so inspired by their soft dun and peachy colours which are contrasted by the striking white and black markings. Such a pleasure to paint.
