Zoo Painting: Part 2

After laying down a yellow base for the background, I did a simple tonal under painting on the animals. For this painting, I selected a triadic color harmony using secondary colors. I painted like washes of purple, green and orange on top of the animals. In some instances, I mixed neutrals from the secondary colors in their complements. Finally I use colored pencils to add detail and to give some dimensionality to the lettering.
