From childhood, drawing in pencil has always been a pleasure. To study and draw this Baby Orangutan was an even greater pleasure. As soon as I saw this little chaps face, I knew I wanted to portray him and pencil seemed the appropriate medium for his portrait.
My baby orangutan portrait, was photographed at a rescue centre in Borneo by the photographer, David Barker. Thank you to David and the Orangutan Foundation for permission to use as reference.
#artistsupportpledge is a generous culture in support of artists and makers, and the concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work to sell, for £200 or less – not including shipping.
Anyone can buy my work and when I eventually receive sales that total £1000, I then Pledge to buy another artists work for £200…. This way, artists support each other whilst also bringing colour, light and art into your life and into your home.
As artists we are creating a dynamic micro economy for all artists. This is especially important now, as income from galleries, art exhibitions, workshops has disappeared due to C19.
Thank you so much for reading my post and as always thank you for your support especially during these uncertain times.
Please feel free to repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors.
