Elizabeth,

Hard to believe this is your first pastel.  It looks so perfectly blended.

You must be so proud of this!!!

Really beautiful Elizabeth.  Hate to show my ignorance but what in the world is a Kudu and where do they live?

Excellent, Elizabeth :clap: :clap: :clap:

The Kudu, with the Eland, is one of the largest of the antelopes and is mainly in Africa. This one is a very mature Bull by the size and twist of the horns

 :thankyou: very much Lynn. Appreciate your comment. Many thanks Dennis for identifying the Kudu. Mainly in Africa. A very stately animal with impressive horns.
