Description

A baby gorilla safe in his mum's embrace. 

As with most of my drawings, I started with the baby gorilla's eyes...once I felt I had captured the emotion I wanted the piece to convey, the rest of the drawing came together quite easily.
Apart from his eyes, my favourite part was drawing his tiny hand as it gripped on to mum's arm.

This work was created using soft pastels, pan pastels and pastel pencils on mi teintes pastel paper.

This artwork is sold unframed. I have included photos to illustrate how this piece will look framed and on a wall.
