Mr. Giraffe

I created this piece while exploring the warm cool palette. I used only burnt sienna and blue-black along with white. I wanted to learn more about the medium while working with a subject I enjoy. The giraffe was the perfect subject for this piece because it already has mostly warm and cool colors. I am interested in painting animals because of their uniqueness and variety. I enjoy exploring the features that make them different from humans as well as textures and colors. The restricted color palette allowed me to focus on the form and create a realistic Image.
