Finished Orang-utan. #3 ;)


Arches smooth surface.  approx 22 " x 30"  It is a full sheet. 



I have finally finished her. I needed to make the orange peel look realistic.  I am calling this done and signed.

I know if I play around with it any more I will just mess up big time.   I'll get Nev to tie my hands behind my back..LOL.

I know, it's hard to stop, but this is absolutely stunning, needs nothing more !

When I read you were doing more in the comments, I thought, oh no, you're going to lose that light - but, I have to say, it does fit better with the orang having the orange peel that much more realistic.
Well done you! xx

Jane, Pat & Krista. Thank you so much for your feedback. I do appreciate your thought and comments.
I just didn't feel happy with just the hint of orange that really didn't represent anything realistic.

I thought it looked good the first time you called it finished but this is the perfect "finish" - yep, get Nev to tie your hands!

I wondered what the white things were in her mouth - I must have missed the fact it was going to be orange peel! Doesn't that just finish it all off beautifully. Your art always puts a huge smile on my face Dors - Love it!!! :)
