Diana monkey with figurine

'Diana monkey with ancestor figurine', acrylics, 9 by 12 ins, Murano paper

Diana monkeys are beautiful but they are endangered.  I was in two minds about whether to do this  painting with arbitrary abstract colour or with realistic colour.  In the end, I did a mid-way colouration. IRL the monkey is black and white with rust-red hind legs.
