the big creature is telling the little creature off, that's all I know!  This just popped out of my paintbrush after a trip to Chester Zoo, so it's loosely inspired by all the animals there, especially the bats, giraffes and elephants!  Another fun picture to paint in gouache, I just love bright colours.

It's amazing what a trip to the zoo can inspire! Congratulations on the Mod's Choice and using gouache--that's a hard medium to work with, as are any paints.

I cannot believe this has not gotten a zillion comments! Three?! Only three so far?! Well, four if you include mine...but come on! Where are your eyes people? Look at this! It's bloody brilliant! You did excellent work on this Laura, truly. In fact I'm a little jealous. 2 It's such a shame that, for a Mod's Choice, this hasn't received more praise.
