'Resilience' -  Giclee Prints in four diferent sizes also available


'Resilience'  Rhino Giclee Prints available in 4 sizes.


I've always loved Rhinos.  Their size, wrinkly skin that looks like amour and their magnificent horns.  I have heard them called 'chubby unicorns' which I think is quite sweet.  I have wanted to capture a Rhino in pencil for a long time, but was nervous about how to tackle the skin as it's unlike the fur or feathers that I usually draw.  However, over the last couple of years I have been using a simplier method with my coloured pencils, that doesn't include too much detail until the very end, concentrating more on the values and colours.  I'm glad I waited as I'm really happy with the result.


  • Coloured Pencil Giclee Prints on HP watercolour paper available in 4 sizes and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.  They will be backed for protection ready for you to mount and frame.


  • Signed by the Artist Samantha Clift together with a certificate of authenticity.


How it was created


Using her beloved Polychromos pencils, Samantha slowly builds up the layers of coloured pencil working from light to dark and adding many layers of colour to slowly fill the troughs of the paper and get rid of any graininess.  After about 20 layers she starts to add the detail of the wrinkles and intensifies the shadows to add depth, making the drawing more 3D.
