The Mandrill

This is an old painting, something I did many years ago as an assignment in art school. I'm posting it because 1. like Laura, I've been trying to draw animals this month but the trip to the zoo I'd planned for that purpose was cancelled and 2. it was used to illustrate a poem and it's filling in while I work on a new illustration to submit to Sparky's "Illustrated Poem Marathon". The first few lines of the poem "The Mandrill" are
In the Mandrill
Beauty and Beast
are well combined.
