Update #3 Orang-utan

 Arches smooth surface.  approx 22 " x 30"  It is a full sheet. 
 I managed to get quite a lot don yesterday  although it is a slow process being so large. Still a long way from being finished.

Such a challenge Dors but he's coming along beautifully. Are you 'negative drawing' all those fine hairs or using an eraser?

Doreen Cross said...

Thank you Hilda. Glad you like him. :) I am really enjoying this project.

Yes indeed a challenge but a fun one. Thanks Sue :) I generally do some in negative and some I use the Tuff Stuff eraser that I have made into a chisel shape. The hair that is sort of wavy at each side of the eyes I have used the eraser. The facial hairs I have done negative drawing.
