This painting was the start of my wild and wacky phase of animal painting!  I had done an original in oil as a photo-realistic piece with the proper colours, the same size as this one and decided that I really wanted to jazz things up so ended up with this painting. 


It was total serendipity as I had not planned the colours or done any pre-painting planning.  It just evolved as I went along and I  loved how it turned out!  After painting this I just kept going and the rest of the Rainbow Zoo which are displayed for you all to enjoy.

Giraffes. Gilly and Son George!
