IT'S A BABY ORANGUTAN!!
I am keeping with the animal theme at the moment and really want to focused on endangered species. Anything I can do to draw people's attention and spread some much needed TLC to these animals and their environments (and consequently our planet). SO, after some thought and consideration, my next piece will be a cheeky little orangutan and I must say that I am super excited to get this one underway!
I spent a little bit of time searching for the right image to work from and then had a scribble session to play with composition and colour. I am working on another 100 cm x 120 cm canvas (same size as the lion). As always I aim to fill it to the brim with colour but I must say, I am going to enjoy adding his ginger tufts of hair....it's just something I can relate to.
The image has now been sketched on the canvas and he is all ready to go. I must say, it has you questioning a few things when you're trying to sketch a baby orangutan and you look in the mirror at yourself for guidance....something to reflect on methinks.
