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.
