Gees golden langur

Coloured pencil

29.7 x 42 cm

Unframed/unmounted. Signed

The wide, blank background and the angle of the hairs serves to direct the viewer to the disconcertingly human eyes of the golden langur. The close up, detailed view offers a warts and all vulnerability and relatability that hopefully inspires empathy in the observer.

I am a retired research nurse with a passion for animals. It was my beautiful German shepherd that inspired me to begin drawing, and Ive since branched out to include animals of all kinds. I use coloured pencils because I have very limited drawing space at home!
