Giraffe Plein Air Watercolor Painting

It was a pretty nice day to visit the zoo so I spent some time watching the giraffes on a bench. They were very active. They barely stood still actually, so this painting needed to be done quickly. I only saw this particular pose once for about a couple seconds. I sketched a quick form and then studied the giraffes as they walked around. That helped me make a more accurate drawing before I started painting.
