WIP Orang-utan

Arches smooth watercolor paper. 




Andrew  asked me how much of the full sheets of Arches paper did the Orang-utan take up.  Here is the actual take up space on the surface.   The Orang-utans hair will cover as much on the left as I have done on the right. The hand and more hair will leave a border at the bottom the same as the top.   
Hope this gives an indication of the size.   

Andrew also said " It is either a young juvenile or a female. The males have the ginormous pads of fat on there face.
      Thank you for the info much appreciated.

This is so soft looking Dors; she looks so gentle and content.

I still can't imagine working so large! That would be very close to life-size I would think.
