this is a small piece...about 6.5 by 9 ins....handmade paper, using oil pastels.

I'm working on the theme of animals and people interacting at the moment.

Monkey and person here.

Comments welcomed.

OMG!!! OP's!! My mostest favoritest [medium] of allllllllllll!!!

I adore everything about this; placement palette design you name it...but particularly the gentle exchange of unspoken compassion and understanding between human animal and not human animal. ;)

The paper adds a primal historic touch to it...well done.

Hope to see more of these!!! O o you makin' me homesick for my op's!!!

there's almost a religious quality to it... very nice. I think it works very well for that topic.

Many thanks, Wilderness and PAL.

OPs are quite good for this subject I find, because they have inbuilt texture-making properties. I just spread the colours about and the OP does the work!!

Acrylics take a bit more effort.

Maybe because I haven't used acrylics much.
