It does not take many strokes, must be right or it just does not work.

This is a delightful, slightly primitive monkey, funnily enough I had the same idea of using a palm frond to paint a mask - the hump in the middle makes a great nose. -if I do get around to it I will post it here. BRAVO Patti!

How do you compose your compositions? Are the just in front of you, combined images or from your imagination?
I love Laurel to see new places and scenes that are shown in your paintings! so different from what I have around me! this is the best thing "meeting" artists... view answer
