Zebra Family

5.25x11.75 watercolor done this afternoon as my daily painting.  I had sketched these animals from small figurines years ago as a basis for a very large oil commission so the pencil drawing remained in my sketchbook.  Today I decided to draw them again on Strathmore 140 lb cold press paper and using a limited palette of quinacridone burnt orange and ultramarine blue I did an abstract background. When dry I added stripes based on what color was in the initial wash.  This was quick and easy and too much fun!
