A painting of two rhinoceroses in an immovable stance… horns up, ready to fight. Rhinos are territorial and aggressive. In this composition the rhinos have already violated each other’s space.

What a glorious medium. Much like the process of pen and ink, drawing in oil pencil is a full commitment. There is no erasing, however it is not only for the brave of heart. My pencil can spin and scrub, smear and wash across the surface depicting a rich calligraphy of textures and values or lend itself to the most subtle indication.
