I thought that as my eldest daughter loves Giraffes I would attempt to paint one. If she likes it I will frame it for her!

Painted on Saunders Hot Press 140lb watercolour paper.

This was painted on Saunders Hot Press 140lb watercolour paper. I am not too fond of Hot Press paper as the paint tends to move around on top of the surface rather than soak into the paper but I am happy with how it came out okay in the end as is so often the case!

I found this an interesting subject to paint and really enjoyed painting it. I thought it best to keep the background light to keep the focus on the Giraffe itself and I seem to have accomplished that okay.

I am also pleased to add that my daughter loves it so now all I have to do is find the right frame and mount it!
