JOJO the Chimp

19"x13"
Watercolor on Saunders Waterford Paper
SOLD
This is a young chimpanzee that I spotted on telly this morning- some documentary about chimps in captivity.I actually froze the frame and took  picture of it--not the best way to get a  reference- but since I planned to paint it loosely, lack of details didn't matter much.In fact it helped me loosen up!

  2. I'm in love, Arti!!!! You painted him beautifully! I've been taking reference photos from the television as well as practice ...trying to loosen myself! Hmmmm! It doesn't help but it's a good practice. Looks like you mastered it because he's amazing.

    1. Yes I like him too.In the beginning I was not sure how would I tackle the dark fir in a large area but everything fell into place eventually.Cherry on top, someone bought him this evening!
