How to Paint a Zebra in Oils

How to Paint a Zebra in Oils



Start by sketching your zebra onto your canvas. You can use a reference photo to help you with this, or you can freehand it. Next, start painting in the basic colors. Start with a light color for the background, then add the darker stripes. You can use a thin brush for this.

Once the basic colors are in place, start adding in the details. Work on one section at a time, and build up the layers of color. Use a variety of colors to create the different shades of the stripes. You can also add in some white highlights to make the zebra stand out.

Take your time with this project, and don't be afraid to experiment. Have fun with it, and you'll end up with a beautiful painting that you'll be proud of.
