Firstly I want to apologise for not commentating on all your artwork.I've not had time to spend on here because I'm in the middle of all my pre-Christmas commissions.I'll post more often after Christmas.
This is my latest painting...a magnificent Gorilla,sitting there looking all proud.
He measures 19" x 18" and painted in acrylics in a traditional acrylic style...not in washes as I usually use acrylics.
He was a bit flat in the reference photo,so I've applied some highlights.....yes,I know,he looks like he's been to the hairdressers !!!

Julian, I love the strength and the vulnerability you have achieved in this super painting.
