A Vast Behind

Back at Folly Farm yesterday, I was in the right place at the right time, standing under a fodder bucket in the Giraffe enclosure during feeding time. Rhian the giraffe was eating her scran just a couple of feet above my head! Well, I had to scribble her, didn’t I? Then she turned her attention to acacia branches hanging from the roof, so I sketched her from behind, rather a vast behind. Giraffe are HUGE! Her eye was about the size of my hand. What a magnificent animal. Drawn with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size F into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook.
