Monkey face

'Juvenile macaque', watercolours, around 7 by 9 ins., on W/C paper.

A quick study of a juvenile macaque face.  I did more of the body in the original but then close-cropped the final sketch to frame the face as this was the focal point.  This version is a bit liberal with blue for shadow but I think the effect is OK for a preliminary sketch.  I can go either way from this for colour: towards a more realistic colour scheme or towards a multi-colour expressive scheme.
