Duel Sketch is an original drawing of elephants by Sophie Harden. This charcoal sketch of two young male elephants playing, on a grey sketchy charcoal background is taken from Sophie’s inspirational travels to Kenya. Simply by using a variation of depths of charcoal, combining highlights of chalk gives the elephants a huge sense of depth and movement. Framed on a dark charcoal wooden frame which compliments the overall monochrome look of this painting. Sophie’s contemporary and fluid technique allows movement to flood the painting, from the explosive energy and grace of animals to the small details that captures a moment in time. Sophie works to accentuate the adaptation of light, making the viewer perceive a 3D object from often just small marks and brushstrokes.

Size: H:41 cm x W:55 cm

Sophie Harden original and prints are available at Wychwood Art both online and in the gallery. Having left corporate life behind in 2016, Sophie decided to make the brave move into the art world. At first, concentrating in producing animal commissions and after a busy Christmas in 2016, she began to grow it into a creditable career. Nearly four years down the line Sophie hasn’t looked back, with her unique style selling well in London and local galleries, with private work and commissions being sold and shipped worldwide. Sophie’s subjects hail from her passion and love for animals, sporting events and travel. As a keen rider Sophie surrounds herself by all equine life which inevitably has led to quite an equestrian theme running through her work. With travel in her blood each trip is evolved around the animals she discovers with a regular trips to Africa to inspire her work. Sophie has exhibited in Belgravia, London at Osborne Studio Gallery at The Mall Galleries, London at The Art For Youth, at the Edinburgh Art Festival and supports local galleries with her work. Her contemporary and fluid technique allows movement to flood the painting, from the explosive energy and grace to the small details that capture a moment in time. Often using a contrast of white oil on bright background colours, Sophie works to accentuate the adaptation of light, making the viewer perceive a 3D object from often just small marks and brushstrokes.
