Fine art illustration of an Asian Small-Clawed Otter (Aonyx cinerea.)
The Asian or Oriental Small-Clawed Otter was completed on 12.3.2014. Some time ago I became fascinated with these wonderful little animals. Living in the Bay Area, not far from the Monterey area, Sea otters figure pretty large in the local mindset. I decided to create a collage of some various species of otter, as I had already drawn 3-4 of them. I’ll likely be adding an African Clawless Otter shortly. The drawing is based on a photo by Nigel Wedge and was used with his permission.
