Zebra and Camel Story

The beginning of stories in young artists work is very interesting. Here, we began with the idea to explore black and white paint on black or white paper.
This painting begins with white vertical strokes on the black paper, creating strong contrast.
Black stripes are added on top of the white and the story begins, this is a zebra.

Working beside her first piece, she begins on the white paper; this one is a camel. "He needs a really big bed. You have to go very fast to make a big bed." This narration was accompanied by rapid movements on the lower half of the page using the big brush.

The zebra painting.

"It's a zebra and a camel; they're friends and they love each other."
