'Internal Conflict' is a mounted and framed, realistic graphite pencil drawing depicting a pair of African lionesses snarling at each other, face to face. The idea of using the same lioness but with one mirrored horizontally, was to give the impression of arguing with oneself, to illustrate a struggle occurring within ones own mind. I for one spend half my life arguing with myself about things. I'm sure many others do too.
I used my favoured Stonehenge paper for this piece which has a delicate texture to its surface, enabling me to achieve a full range of tones from delicate silvery greys to rich jet black. I think that this imposing, powerful piece would be a fantastic addition to any wildlife enthusiast's art collection.
Measuring approximately 20.5 x 10.5 inches, it has been mounted in a white mount and framed in a luxurious 1.25 inch, brushed silver frame, to a total size of 27 x 16.5 inches, ready to hang.
