This is number 17 of the 30 paintings in 30 days. I enjoyed doing this guy, using a slightly different watercolor technique. I usually paint wet on wet, but employed wet on dry paper, keeping the bead line wet. I can't help but think that this poor guy is watching his sweet thing being taken by someone superior. I didn't intend on painting this emotion, but there is something about the look in his eyes that just get me. The ape family is very interesting to me, and I'm doing a little research along with this painting just to get to know them better. Our here, in west Texas is not the place to find them. I doubt we have any in our local zoo, either. Maybe warm weather will require a little zoo trip to find out. What do you think of him? Does he have a story to tell?
