Artist's description:

This is another fairly large one and makes such a dramatic statement in my studio now that it's framed and hung. An original graphite pencil drawing on Strathmore 400 series paper depicting a pair of male African lions. My reference photograph was taken by Rachael Thorne and used with her kind permission. The Strathmore paper used is produced primarily for pencil work and is a new experience for me. It handles similarly to my more regularly chosen Stonehenge paper, allowing the artist to exploit different textures and subjects with great tonal depth and variation, also providing the opportunity to portray intricate detail without the result looking too overworked. Measuring approximately 20 x 12 inches, this piece has been bevel mounted and framed in an antiqued silver gilt frame to a total size of about 28 x 20 inches, ready to hang. These frame mouldings I believe are very sympathetic to pencil drawings, not as stark as the more usually chosen plain black so therefore not overpowering the art work yet suitable to blend in with almost any decor.

Materials used:

Graphite pencils on Strathmore paper.
