View Full Version : A little rubber necking X-post in animals (giraffes)

This is a pastel done for my wife, Linda 30 plus years ago. Done on mat board and hard to photograph due to glass but I think this will give you an idea of what it looks like. This shows the different types of markings that giraffes have and shows them neck sparring and using different ways to reach the ground. Can you see what the composition is built on? Gee I think you can!

This is beautifully done! Yes, the markings are very different. I hope you'll consider posting more pastels in our Gallery.
