A Good Ticking Off

Here is this week's watercolour painting. I love giraffes but they can look a bit boring as a painting, they don't fit the shape of the paper very well.

So to add interest I've added a couple of Oxpecker birds which spend their time feeding on the ticks, lice and other parasites on the large mammals of Africa. I decided against putting in any background  to give a bit more impact.

This painting measures 15.5 inches x 11 inches before mounting and framing and is for sale on the Mighty Fine Website.
