Animal Quilt - Golden Lion Tamarin

Oddly enough this little portrait came together fairly easily, much to my surprise.  Maybe I'm just getting better at using the inks?  Once again, I started with a rough outline of my animal. In this case a Golden Lion Tamarin. I roughed in his body with yellow and quickly applied an orange getting the colors to bleed together nicely.



After letting the first application of color dry, I added more layers of darker orange and a deep red and roughed in the branch.



The next layer, I applied a deep blue with hints of purple in the background. I thought this would contrast nicely with the orange/yellow of the tamarin. I also added a gray/tan face, added fur streaks and applied white highlights.
