So, to swing with theme of monkey business, I once again grasped the watercolour vine, and repainted a monkey for one of my students in grade five! I sketched it first with pencil instead of starting with drawing with my paint brush. The proportions seem to be better, but the eyes, the eyes... the paint always plays monkey business on the paper and with my mind! One day, I will take the monkey out of the business of painting. OOO---OOOO---OOOOO! Oh, well! Painting monkeys can be positive monkey business at the end of a tiring Monday!
The art is "soul property" of Renee Dowling.

Take Me Out of the Computer Jungle!
A virus performed monkey business with my computer last week, so I am using my son's computer for now. I am having trouble taking an image of my art that truly represents the colour. ACDSee has been recommended because it is easier than Photo Shop. Does anyone use any other programs or have any recommendations when taking photographs of their art? Now that I have some birthday money from the weekend, I have some extra cash to buy a photo editing program. I don't really like to do monkey business with my photography, except for cropping, so I am not sure if I really need an expensive, complicated program. Any ideas?
