    Mother and child

    A White Rhino and her newborn female offspring. The baby rhino was just a matter of hours old when the photo ref was taken. She was born at our local free-range zoo a few weeks ago.

    Watercolour and airbrush. I think I spent more time deciding on the background than I did on the painting!

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    Looks nice. The background is a cross between natural with perspective and a tonal treatment like a photographer might use called a 'no seam' which is a roll of paper or fabric pulled down to be underfoot and wrap up behind.

    The earthy feel definitely suits mom and the baby. Cute stuff.
