Medium: Graphite pencil on Bristol Board Image Size: 11 x 15.5 inches Framed Size: 17 x 21.5 inches
'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 that rhino skin along with elephant, really challenging to draw and 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.
Conscious of the need to recycle, I re-use shipping materials whenever possible. Therefore my package may not always be the prettiest, but you can be sure that I will still have made it as secure and robust as possible.
