Fine art illustration of a White-Headed Capuchin (Cebus imitator.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The White-Headed Capuchin was completed on 8.23.2013. Several years ago I visited Costa Rica, and spent many lovely days wandering in the various environments. I was approached by one of these charming monkeys, obviously looking for a hand-out of food. I don’t recall having anything to give him (or her?) But the encounter stayed with me. I’m currently putting together a collection of animals found in the cloud forest of Monte Verde, and knew that I should probably include this ubiquitous primate in it. While black fur still creates a challenge for me, I’m happy with the results here.
