Playing around with monkeys and ink, pen and washes.
I'm recently back from Bali where I met my first Macaque monkeys. This handsome poser wants to make sure he ends up in a painting of mine. The others? Yeah, not so much.
I tried sketching these two -https://www.instagram.com/p/BS-zLbRh9u3/ but as you can see, they preferred using me as a jungle gym. Here's a few attempts of some other wonderful rascals.
I sketch to work out ideas in my head or to capture a gesture or movement. Most of the ones in color are becoming paintings.
