Reworked Abstract Zebra

22x30 acrylic abstract done a few years ago and used as the basis for a new work as seen below:


30x22 mixed media finished piece, Zebra Vibration, done today. I used a black permanent marker to draw the animal's shape and stripes, then black ink for those. Lastly I added opaque and transparent watercolor to the background, plus gouache. Crayons as wax resists you can see clearly now.
