Still into portraits since Felix gave me a reputation to hold. :) Here is one that may interest you as I still use the same strategy that John Thamm shows in the video. I probably should try it for landscapes too as he suggests it to Bob, later.
The painting itself took me 4 hours or so and still is on a 30x40cm cardboard canvas (I will change soon, because of too many defects of this material) primed with black acrylic, and covered with varnish. I only used black, titanium white, yellow ocre, veridian green and phthalo blue. This time, by wiping out a lot the excesses of paint, I finished in a single day. I didn't want to overdo details too, after satisfaction getting the gorilla's fur well done by scrapping with the top of a brush (the additive/substractive effect works so well for that!) .
"The gorilla and the bee" may not be the name of a fable from Jean de la Fontaine, but I wanted to paint this one, inspired by a photo on Pinterest where the bee was in fact a butterfly. I found it more emotional and meaningful since both species are more than endangered.
