Final touches

Well today was my last day for my chimp’s piece.  I’ve taken her as far as I can currently with my level of skill.  That’s humbling to say but got to know your limits.

overtaking her

Well I worked one more day of the chimp’s piece; I think I might be able to squeeze one more day out of her, without overtaking her.  That way I can make the foals pop.  I have evened out most of the outer edges to create more even focus.  For me a painting is all about where you want someone to look creating depth.  Our money shots are the face of the parent chimp and the baby.  So wish me luck for tomorrow.

Chimp’s final hours

Today I worked a little more on the focals of the chimps.  I’m not sure how much more is left for me to do on her but I think she might be in a good place for now.

Well I spent a little work on the chimp’s piece.  Life gets busy and time becomes more precious.  But well get there just a little bit at a time.

Animal painting

I worked a little more on my chimp painting, it took a while but she is getting closer to where she should be.

Well I'm running low on animal paintings so I've started a chimp’s piece, I like the emotion in the pose, let see if I can pull it off and translate that emotion to the painting.
