Day 26: Hanno the Wooden Gorilla

Since starting this daily sketching, I often notice something during the day that I plan to sketch later. I think about it and sometimes even plan how I might draw it. Today, being a busy day of shopping and errands, inspiration didn't come until later when I spotted Hanno, the wooden gorilla, sitting on a shelf. I  propped him on a yoga block and thought that since he has so many flat planes, he would be good for shading practice.

After one sketch, I wanted to do another and then another.  I have a feeling that this gorilla will appear again. After all, Van Gogh painted his postman at least seven times and I need a lot more practice than Van Gogh!

Wonderful...I love this Gorilla too. He has such personality....or it could be how you have posed him.
