Zebra Baby

I love painting horses and lately have been working on a series of steeplechase paintings. I wanted to do something a little different today and this little guy just begged to be painted! It was quite a challenge to paint the light effect across the pattern of stripes. He is 12x 12 oil on canvas. I am continuing to try out the new Escoda brushes and am afraid I am becoming addicted to them. I really like the mix of natural bristle and synthetic, they clean up well and are holding their shape beautifully.
