Giraffe Portrait - Final, Stage One & Two

Stage One of The Painting
Stage Two
Final Version - 9"x 12" Watercolor - 140lb Cold Press Paper
The demo for my Open Studio group this week was on painting a giraffe. Most of the group worked on painting the head & neck portion of the animal. My students did wonderful work and I think we were all surprised at how much fun we had with this subject. The other images in this post are at stage one (the underpainting) & stage two of the painting. It was meant to be a quick and simple project. Hope you like my little giraffe!
