Old Man of the Forest

'Old Man of the Forest' is an ultra realistic, original, graphite pencil drawing on Strathmore Bristol vellum paper featuring an orangutan resting on a fallen tree log. Although it took many, many hours to complete, I thoroughly enjoyed creating this fellow, with his flowing long hair and wrinkled features. His expression is kindly, with almost the hint of a shy smile. I've gone for as much detail as I can to bring out what I perceive to be his personality, drawing the fallen tree more loosely and with a hint of the forest floor beneath.


Measuring approximately 16 x 13 inches, this piece is presented in a white mount within a complimentary mottled silver frame with black sides, to a total size of about 23 x 20 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
