Thank you Li for this adorable little Howler, love this photo and all the others. Hope to get to the frog when I finish the monkey. It's late so needed to stop, may not get back to it until Monday so will post. This is about 3 hours, 6x6x1 acrylic on canvas, limited palette. I started him out a little to big to get his arm in so had to reposition it. Also posting a very bad WC of one of Sharrons beautiful photos from last week, couldn't upload.


9x4 ( I think) watercolor. Painting so bad I just photo with phone.

:angel: So you took the bait, eh Gail?:lol: Those monkeys were amazing the way they flew through the canopy. You captured his "what you lookin' at ?" look perfectly. I really like the loosely painted brush as well. Sharrons boats are a bit blurry but the scene looks very peaceful and comforting. Well done on both.

The Howler is coming along great, Gail!
As Li said, the boat scene looks very calming and peaceful.

You Had to paint him after that invite! :)
Lovely composition with all the dark foliage around him.
How annoying with the phone photo. I take all mine with a phone, suggestion: maybe you were too close or you may find you need to touch the screen to make it refocus.
