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.
