This guy just looks so friendly.

I’m not 100% satisfied with the likeness, but when I think about how long I’ve been using watercolour, it’s actually pretty good. I really enjoy this medium, and i think that it’s a great adventure to paint with watercolour. I really start noticing things.. For instance, there seem to be a lot of blue tones present in ape’s black-ish skincolour.. It’s quite astounding when you see something that’s a little hard to believe, but you try to reproduce it like that anyway, and it turns out to work really well.

I even think that my watercolours are better than my pencil-drawings.. Maybe I’m just excited !
