Wildebeest #33

I've been way too busy, but I'm finally seeing a little light at the end of the tunnel. I sat down and to just enjoy pushing some paint around. I just wanted to jump in and play. This Wildebeest comes from a photograph we took at Wildlife Safari where my husband and I volunteer.

I didn't do any preliminary sketching, just started painting. Painted on Arches cold press watercolor paper.

It just sounds so exotic! Closest I have been to a Wildebeast is Lion King movie when the kids were small.. The limited palette works wellHe seems to come out enough from the background to get a sense of his size. You really captured him -or her.

No sketching! Wow! He is great! I love how you caught him/her with just a few brush strokes!
