White Moonlight Black Night

In January 2020 I set out to do a double panel painting/illustration based on the White Moonlight illustration from August 2019. This time I wanted to include a black rhino.

Framed, finally!.

Technique and materials:
Gouache and Watercolour paint on gesso board (gesso primer as a textured background). This is then carried through using the rubaway technique – highlights are rubbed away and mid and dark tones added.

Completed 9 April 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown.

For print-on-demand prints of these two panels visit my Zazzle store and Society6 store.

The final work measures 162cm x 51cm (each panel at 81cm x 51cm).
