Stripes 2

I must have been crazy to try this one. I felt like I was in a maze. After a while, I lost my way, but finally I did find my way out. I know each zebra has a different stripe pattern, not unlike our finger print, and that fact was proven to me as I sketched these. I decided to add some juicy watercolor after I finished. So I posted both here.

Gosh, you must have some patience! The stripes look perfect to me, and I can imagine how hard they were to draw. The blue offsets the whole thing nicely.

This one is great. I like the way the zebras are intertwined and almost become one.

I felt sure I left a comment here yesterday, but it doesn't seem to have shown! Anyway, I love the zebras, colour and black and white both work really well. Great composition and very unusual!
