Monkey Gang

this is my entry for Share One Planet contest
there are pretty great entries so far it's invitational competition so  
I feel very honored that they invite me too :) 
Golden snub-nosed monkeys are amazing beautiful 
their color fur is just beautiful, unique nose shape as the name suggests, 
flattened and set back from the muzzle give them this out of ordinary look.  
Unfortunately, this colorful species is endangered due to deforestation. 
Specifically, their favorite tasty lichens typically grow on dead trees and these are the ones that are often harvested for firewood and other uses.  
That's way I painted them this way, with grey tones .... 
I entilted it 'Monkey Gang' because these monkeys live in family groups.
hope you like it :)
