Janie - Work in Progress 3
A lack of time this last week stopped me from continuing on with Janie until today. I've added the cage bar to give a hard edge and reflect the plight of a captive animal in an old style zoo enclosure. Janie is too used to her old enclosure and after attempts to integrate her and the other former tea party chimpanzees into a group situation it was decided to leave Janie and her friends where they were. Janie is the last of the tea party chimps. She is the reminder of when apes like her were considered unintelligent and there only for entertainment.
I'm still using 2H and H at this stage on this drawing.
