This Ape Peering by Zilpa Van Der Gragt

ARTIST NOTES: This is the first of my endangered species series. The Sumatran orangutans need all the help they can get. I will donate 10% of the price of this painting when sold to their cause. As with all my paintings, this was painted in what I have named pyrowax. It is a combination of pyrography(wood burning) and encaustic painting ( a mixture of molten beeswax, damar resin and coloured pigment). It is a slow progress but worth it as I am able to get a texture I could not get with paint. This painting took 175 hours to complete.
