Happy Hippo

A happy Hippo going for a refreshing dip on a sunny day. 


I don't usually paint animals but I could not resist this cute face and had to give it a go in watercolor.

I am sharing this with Daily Paintworks and Paint Party Friday.

A zoo hippo, Cynnie? I don't think they are native to Germany. ;-) This is a terrific painting of that funny "water hog." (Love the new look of your blog, too.)

Jaja ich kann keine Tiere malen, ja das sehe ich *gg*
Das wirkt so toll, die Farbkombi, die Lichter, es wirkt plastisch und es ist für mich perfekt!
Wünsche Dir eine schöne Woche,

You never paint animals? Well, this looks like you've done it many times before. It's done so well! I love the light (and shadows).
