In a monkey mood


'Liontailed macaque- in the frame', neocolour 2, grey pastel paper, 5 ins sq.

A small crayon drawing of a monkey with a fabulous hairdo.  Its a sketch to see if soluble crayons give a plausible hair effect and also to get to grips with this species facial features.  I may go on to do a larger size portrait of this one or incorporate this monkey in a jungle scene.

I found this video about these endangered monkeys:
