Zebra Zone ~ day 19 of 30 paintings in 30 days challenge

5.5x7 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper that is today's daily painting for Leslie Saeta's challenge.  Twice a year her blog hosts any artists wanting to pledge to paint one work per day.  Sometimes I do more than one to stay ahead.  The zebra here is being also featured on WetCanvas animal challenge for January hosted by Virginie.  Dark stripes a mix of ultramarine blue and quinacridone burnt sienna, and background was changed from the green foliage to earthy browns and rusty oranges.
