3.5x7 watercolor of the four grown zebras standing together discussing the day's events. Today I painted them on Canson 140 lb cold press paper and took about the entire 2 hours, counting the sketch done first on 8.5x11. I worked from a black & white printer copy of the photo. Darks mixed with quinacridone burnt orange plus UB, Daniel Smith paints.
C&C welcome :cool:

Lovely painting Kay the title '' bottom line '' could work:)

Thank you everyone! Yes, my eyes are now normal. I thought of the title "In Arrears", too, and "Bottom Line" is funny, too.
