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:
