Back to painting after all the excitment

Got back to painting today, spurred on with the news that I've sold a painting at the KAOS exhibition. My peacock has gone to a new home! I met the guy who bought him, he was so pleased with his purchase. It gives me such satisfaction to meet the people who buy my work. I think that's why I enjoy taking commissions. Today I worked further into my gibbon piece played with ideas for the rope and branches. I also had a major redo of his head, I hope for the better! My latest project is a hippo, again in oils. A new sized canvas for me, but obviously suitable for the subject! I put a skin of oils paint on today, just to knock out the stark white of the canvas.
