Gong Hey Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year and I hope the year of the monkey will be a splendid one! I took this photograph of a Francois' Langur monkey at the Los Angeles Zoo quite some time ago. I thought about using this one for my zodiac monkey painting, but I wanted to focus more on a face. He was definitely a cutey though! I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint animals, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. I think she has a sweet and thoughtful quality... I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
She is face 10 for 29 faces in February. The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
