Final stages of the gorilla.

Three shots showing the final stages of the gorilla. I've included one of my pastel studio to show the layout of how I worked when doing this painting. You will notice that I took the gorilla to a level where I knew he was going to be a success, I then switched to the hard work of getting all the foliage correct, (including the butterflys that I photographed in Zaire precisely for such a painting), and then finished off the gorilla to complete the work.

This painting is now available as special limited edition print, if you're interested please click HERE to contact me.

I have seen that original painting and is fantastic!. I love the gorilla's face and the butterflies that transport you to the hot jungle!

Eric: ...Desde este lado del mundo y desde esta pequeña ciudad, no nos hemos cansado de deleitarnos con tu Gorila marvilloso, estamos impresionadísismos de verdad con tu trabajo, a veces parece que estuvieramos viendo uan fantasía... No sabes lo que nos gustaría ver algún día tus pinturas en vivo y en directo... Felicitaciones y mucha suerte.
