Three wise monkeys


'Three wise monkeys', acrylics, 10 by 12, on paper.

I need to take a photo in better light.  This started out as a textured background then I added the 3 wise monkeys-' hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil'-sized up from a small pen doodle done in the middle of the night.  It continues my monkey theme,

This was an experiment to see if this technique works for painting up small pen doodles.  I think it has potential and anyway...its fun to do.

I find that using stamping helps give a bold statement with good coverage of  any under-painting plus an interesting texture.

Here's the original doodle, around 3.5 by 5.5 ins. on paper.
