White Moonlight

I wanted to try out a large rubaway (one of my favourite techniques – see the Sunset Pride from 2009) and decided to illustrate a white rhino and gift it to my brother, Michael, who works on a game farm in Limpopo.

Over a few weeks I developed the picture and finally gave it to him at his home we we as a family visited him and his wife.

The Work In Progress:

Applying gesso background

Pencil work plus masking fluid added to whites

Watercolour wash
