De Brazza’s Monkey

  • #DoodlewashDecember2021: Snow. Cause this guy’s got a snowy beard!

Did you know that when a group of De Brazza’s Monkeys feels threatened, they all freeze except for the alpha male, who will begin shaking branches in order to draw attention away from the others?

I used ZenArt’s Fineline brush set for this painting, in order to get that detailed grizzled look of the fur.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. I love these small stories of ingenious strategies for survival. I hope Jack will shake the branches for ME! He certainly is starting to look more and more De Brazza these days with his snowy beard! 🙂
