Best Friends Watercolor

Another in my series of paintings of zebras, I created this one after seeing two zebras caress at the local zoo.  It seems a friendly hug and comforting gesture.  I used masking fluid to get the hairs on the snout and eyelashes.  I painted the strips with indigo blue and not black.  I said it before that I hate black.  It is such a flat color in watercolors and has a lifeless feel.  Indigo however has a blue-black look and when watered down looks blue-grey.  It was perfect for these zebras.  I won an award in a local art show for this painting a few years back.
