Final Steps

The next step was to complete the left zebra.
Before playing with the foreground, I wanted to darken both main zebra. The shadowed "whites" were too light.

The foreground did not need much. Some rocks with shadows helps the illusion of the sun from the left side.

Original Oil

Note: more accurate color and lighting by using my Canon EOS rather than my phone for the photo.

This was an interesting experiment with the shape. I have no idea how well it will be received by potential collectors, but I am glad I painted it. The framer now knows that a double frame will be on the piece and I think her fainting spell was temporary.
