About the Image(s)

This gorilla was taken at the Bronx Zoo, behind glass. I loved his pose. While the sunny conditions allowed me to see distinct facial features, the background was overexposed. So I thought it would make a good painting. I first painted this in the summer of 2019 “ in PS with the mixer brushes. Two years later, I have now revisited and refined it; with hopefully an improved skillset. To me, the latest version is so much better; the background is more cohesive with the subject, the added foreground grasses are more natural and the eyes have been toned down so that they appear less intense.
