Sunstruck - Giraffe



The model for "Sunstruck" was a bull giraffe named DJ, from the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa. He was always in motion, swiveling his ears and adjusting his mouth. His facial expressions conveyed such great character. What pulled me into doing this painting however, was all the angles and the way the light bounced off them. He seemed to almost glow.

Composition and cropping play a big part for me in deciding how I want to portray a particular animal.In this giraffe painting I liked the back-turned head and the soft pastel colored ears playing a major part in the focus.

The original giraffe painting was a watercolor pencil piece done on Arches 140# watercolor paper.
