Original watercolour painting of 2 zebras leaning on one another for support.
Original watercolour painting of zebras. Sometimes life is just too hard! It helps to have a friend that you can lean on… This is a small original painting.
Sue Dickinson’s preferred painting medium is watercolour. This much under-rated medium is widely acknowledged by artists to be the most difficult. “There is no room for error with watercolour – because once it’s on the paper, it is almost impossible to remove. Consequently, I work carefully and accurately. I’m not attempting to reproduce reality, therefore I want to work fairly loosely too.
It is important for the viewer to be able to see the mark of the artist, and also the journey I have taken on the page. Certainly, I don’t want a slick look.”
Zebras are constantly on the move for fresh grass to eat and water to drink.
Zebras are social animals and live together in large groups, called herds. Within a herd, zebras tend to stay together in smaller family groups.
Each zebra’s stripes are unique. Just as no two human fingerprints are alike, no two zebras have the same stripe pattern.
