Well you have certainly made it look very easy! But I bet I couldn't do it! It's perfect - and I love those beautiful colours in his skin :0)

Debbie said...

You say the kindest things Sandra... thank you! I feel I need to play on certain parts of the face before it's near to what I envisaged!

Carol Blackburn said...

Love the way you filled up the paper with him, it really shows his size. And your colors are wonderful, too.

Debbie said...

Thank you Carol... now for the biggie... this was the study!

Marie Theron said...

Thank you for your dedication to their cause and safety, Debbie! You DO paint these animals better than I have seen anywhere.

Crystal Cook said...

It's wonderful Debbie! I agree with both Carol and Sandra. :) The colors are great and he looks massive and impressive already!

Debbie said...

Marie, I thank you for your kind words..... I'm right behind the plight and if I can make a weeny difference it will make my day! I think they are the better rhinos you've seen as not many people paint them..... they aren't the most stimulating animal to paint! Poor things!

Crystal... Thank you, now onto the larger painting!!!!! Wish me luck, as the second ones aren't always as successful!

It looks great!

Wonderful job on this one - good colors and I like how you have him coming right at the viewer. Will be looking forward to the larger version, too.

Wow, I find it fabulous! It reminds me of the watercolors of Hazel Soan! Ciao!

Pat said...

Great job! Love the light and shadow on his face ! x

Debbie said...

Thank you so much Brigitte, Rhonda and Pat. I'm enjoying exploring this animal.... who says a rhino has to be grey? I'd like to add purples, ceruleans and oranges!!! Haha!
