This gorilla is another in the series that I painted for my exhibition at Aylesbury library this month. It has a delicate coloured background to reflect the calm, contemplative mood. Painted mostly in black and white, colour has been added to the monotone with her eyes, and there is a variety of brushwork for the different textures in her face and fur. I love her expression - just what is she thinking about?
This painting is for sale and you can see it on display until 27th October at Aylesbury Library, Walton Street, Aylesbury HP20 1UU - please message me if you’d like to know more! You can see opening times here.
