Fine art illustration of an Alpine Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra.)
The Alpine Chamois was completed on 9.18.2013. I decided to put together a collection of animals that are native to the Black Forest of southern Germany. I was lucky enough to travel there many years ago, and the beauty of that place has never left me. So in doing some research of animals native to that area, I “discovered” the chamois – an animal I was unaware existed, I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit. But I think it will make a nice addition to the collage of animals. The drawing is based on a photo by Ed McAskill and was used with his permission.
