'Airborne' is a photo-realistic, original, graphite pencil drawing on bright white Bristol board, depicting a charging rhinoceros calf. My reference photograph was provided by Paul Sherman who managed to capture the young rhino with all four feet off the ground. Such a great shot! I felt compelled to make a drawing from it (with his kind permission)


I find rhino skin along with elephant, really challenging to draw and it takes a lot more time and work than fur or hair, but I do love a rhino or elephant, especially a calf. I think the result was worth the effort.


Measuring approximately 11 x 15.5 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a complimentary 3/4 inch square section, distressed silver gilt frame, to a total size of about 17 x 21.5 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
