Spring at the Columbus Zoo
I wanted to share a watercolor painting, 8 by 10 inches, of a young giraffe from the Columbus Zoo. This little painting was a bit of a struggle as I muddle through rocks and trees and backgrounds, the animals are so....much easier. I liked the soft colors of Spring and the strong sun and shadows and this is the picture I came up with.
I think I will head to some of your blogs to study your trees, I find them (the trees) very challenging, whether up close or further in the background. Too many branches! I am thinking something simpler for my next painting.
