Golden Snub Nosed Monkey Sketch Art...



Here is a sketch of a golden snub nosed monkey.  They are native to China.  In honor of Chinese New Year, I like to paint the zodiac animal of the year.  This year it will be the monkey.  As usual I'm getting a bit of a late start, but I am hoping to finish on time!    


This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at http://www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
