Baby rhino drawing – “Gentle Giant”
The rhino is massively under threat due to poaching for its horn. It will be a sad loss to the world to see such a beautiful animal disappear. This is a drawing of a white rhino, easily differentiated to the black rhino by the difference in shape of the upper lip. Both species are short-sighted but have a good sense of hearing and smell. They will charge if they feel threatened and being on the heavier side of heavy you don’t want to mess with them!
Drawn in graphite pencil on paper, the original piece is approximately A3. It’s still one of my favourite pieces!
