Grazing Zebras

5.75x7 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper, drawn and painted this afternoon. First I applied a primary color underpainting of ultramarine blue, quinacridone gold, and permanent rose.  After drying, I painted the animals' stripes with a mix of UB and quinacridone burnt orange.  Shadows were UB and permanent rose; background same colors plus Halloween Orange and green gold.  Lastly, splatters were applied to foreground with the same brown mix.  Some edges are lost over their posterior areas.  This work is SOLD.
