When I painted this rhino in watercolor, I really took my time. I carefully thought about what I wanted it to look like. I planned my colors and did a color study first. It is a layering process that requires gentleness and time. There was something very peaceful about painting him and the manner that I did it. A charging rhino would be no fun, but a resting rhino is a delight! It was a warm sunny morning when I spotted him, napping with his buddy at the Zoo in Louisville, Kentucky.
