No, no, not me...her! (scroll down).

I saw her standing under a dry bush thicket in Kruger National Park, South Africa. She looked ready to pop.

It's pastel on kitty wallis, ca. 24 x 12 inches.

Please C & C. Want to improve, so need heavy-duty bitchin' critique! ;)

Love it, the stripes are awesome. The shadow on her muzzle cast by the branch is really nice touch.

Claudia, good to find you here! Always loved your watercolors.

This is hilarious, unique, skillfull. Very clever composition, and the background is just perfect to pop the pregnant one up...I mean to highlight the outlines of this beautiful zebra :)

Am so disappointed, haven't done the heavy duty bitch thing for ages. There is nothing I can say other than I love it. Wonderful use of colour and an image that I would never see, so thank you for doing it so well.:thumbsup:

many thanks all!

I love zebras; they are so goofy. The stripes are actually easy to do - once you've studied the zebra and know in which direction they must run on which part of the body.
