Made a start on a new project today, its oil on canvas, fairly small 30x30cm. This painting is hopefully going to be all about capturing tension, in the gibbon and the rope its balanced on as its pulled taut. The gibbon is bathed in a golden glow, however details are going to kept to a minimum so the clean shape of the gibbon's profile isn't lost - well that's the plan! Got a very rough skin on the canvas this afternoon just to knock out the white, and to form a crude colour balance in my mind.
