New painting – Antelope lady

I’ve finished my antelope lady painting, I tried to create a look of sheen on her coat and was inspired by the Akhal Teke horses of Turkmenistan, they have a natural metallic sheen which makes them look golden :) I also looked at some paintings by George Stubbs, a master of painting horses.

But yes she is supposed to be an antelope, I wanted her hair braid to represent a horn and the ‘unfinished’ look of her legs to convey a sense of busy movement.
I don’t know much about her except that she is in a hurry, as she has stuff to do..
