'Evanescing' is the second of five Orangutan  portraits I am completing that purely focuses on the beautiful animals faces. This Original is titled 'Evanescing ...'.

I am extremely fortunate, and lucky,  this image as also made it through to the David Sepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2023 Final and the Original was hanging in the Mall Galleries, London 11th - 16th September. 

These amazing, gentle creatures share 97% of our DNA yet are on the brink of extinction due to deforestation as well as the horrific trading of wild animals, particularly in the Asian countries.  After attending the 'Eyes of the Orangutan' filming in London, which still haunts me to this day, and watching the inexcusable and horrendous acts done to these beautiful animals I want to help the amazing #bosfoundation and #bos_uk  as much as I am able. 


Simply being aware of how an animal is portraid within an image online and not 'liking' or 'sharing';  watching animals performing acts that are simply done for our entertainment; riding animals, particularly elephants, simply for a day out; attending animal circuses to watch them complete tricks or entertain in a boxing ring!  are all things that everyone can help stop doing to end these horrific acts and just thinking about what that animal has, and is, going through simply for a 'photo opportunity' is one step towards ending their suffering.


The portait comes ready to hang, double mounted in soft white and finished in a very pale soft grey frame which sets off the face colours beautifully.

The portrait is signed and dated by myself, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.   A percentage of the drawing will be donated to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.
