Brown Lemur














I was getting a little bored with the brown paper so I thought it was time to use the white again before I forget how to! Unusually for me, I've included a bit of background too as it makes the light around the edges of the fur stand out better. This is a Brown Lemur from Madagascar - after cats, lemurs are my favourite animals, and I met my husband in Madagascar so it's always been a bit special for me!

The drawing is done on Winsor & Newton cartridge paper (in their square format leather bound journal) and I used a combination of Derwent and Polychromos pencils with the usual addition of black and white from the Luminance range.
