Blue Wildebeest – Postcards for the Lunch Bag


Artwork- Zebra Zensations Technical Pen and American Journey Watercolor on a Hahnemühle Coldpress Watercolor Postcard. Thanks to Fabrizio Frigeni for sharing their work on Unsplash.

Did you know that the Blue Wildebeest often migrates with Zebras; a symbiotic relationship because zebras have better memories for safe passages, and wildebeest can smell out water better?

This painting rapidly got darker than I meant it to. I expected more color shift, but my mix of Prussian Blue and Burnt Sienna stayed pretty true to the original color!

  1. I love the explanation of the symbiotic relationship between the wildebeest and the zebra! Such good collaboration among fellow travelers! I too, love that luscious lavender highlight. And I don’t think it’s at all too dark, the colors are wonderfully dramatic for our shaggy friend. Well done!
