August 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Giraffe

This is a photo I snagged from the November 24/25 2017 WDE images posted by tyree and used with permission.

I did it in class last week and it is a fun image. Have fun painting it and can you suggest a caption?



Sorry, no larger version available.

Here's my version, done in class in about an hour, around 6.5 inches square



Have fun

Doug

Like your painting of the giraffe Doug, but can't think of a name for it.
Christel, This is great, like the way you did it.

Re: August 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Giraffe

I saw this photo when it was originally posted and had to give it a try. I have been experimenting with Bev Jozwiak's painting style on hot press paper. This is a quarter sheet.

I love the goofy look on the giraffe's face. My attempt at about 6x6 inches.
