A Sweet Faced Primate

This guy had such a wonderfully peaceful look on his face, I just had to take some time and paint his portrait. His eyes glisten and he looks like he's wearing a grin. The painting is 5x7 inches on a canvas panel. I used a palette of ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, alizarin crimson, and white. It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning.

SUCH a cutie Nancy...reminds me of the orangutan pic from my zoo day! I especially love how they always seem so content...especially when they are on their hammocks! ha...Great job with the color choices!!

Thanks, Saundra. He did seem quite content--just loved his face!
