This one was painted in acrylics, using a lovely photograph by John Livernois as a reference. I was thrilled to receive the People's Choice award when exhibiting at a local gallery.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/08-Mar-2012/1032062-orangutan_mum_and_baby.jpg

Thank you, all! My local gallery runs a themed challenge each year which is open to the public - everyone paints on the same sized canvas and can use any medium. All good fun and great to see the different interpretations of a theme.

What a touching piece! I love orangutans...and you have definitely captured the bond between these two.:)

Very cute! I'd like to guggest that instead of making their nostrils quite so dark, perhaps using a slightly lighter, warm grey. That way the attention goes more to their eyes first. Congratulations on your well deserved win!
