Chamois, the delightful goat-antelopes found in European mountains from the Pyrenees to the Caucasus. These pictures came from a visit to Les Ecrins National Park in south-eastern France in April 1996.
In his book Lines from Nature John wrote, “Snow fragments make precise shapes against the darker colours and textures of the screes, yet they seem to float free. The are like pegged-out pelts of winter, slowly shrinking to nothing. A group of chamois rest on the snow rather than on the rocks, bracing themselves against the slope with spread legs”
All these pictures are for sale, the little Chamois drawing as part of the #artistsupportpledge where we pledge to buy £200 of another artist’s work for every £1000 of our own sold.
