In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  Focusing on the rainforest for this one, specifically the Amazon and its flora and fauna.  Also wanted to work on a larger piece, so this one is 20″ wide by 20″ high.  It’s heavily detailed courtesy of all the leaves and tree branches.  Not to mention full of white-faced capuchin monkeys!  The sketch on paper maps everything out before I transferred it to canvas.  The painting itself is an acrylic on canvas.  I’m still working on the rainforest background at the moment, and the blue morpho butterflies.  Butterflies may be small, but they are hugely symbolic in my work.
