Zebra are one of Africa's most iconic animal. This herd has come to the waters edge right before sundown with a cautious approach as they are posed to dart off at any smell, sight or sounds of danger, while the Oxpecker's act as lookouts in exchange for access to their insect meals.
Compositionally with the horizon line low, so as if you were at the water level, I placed the only zebra with his head up looking straight at you in the center of the scene. This gives balance to the left and right of the painting and increases the tension for the viewer. I also left the background impressionistic and colorful and then slipped some of these colors into the zebra giving their black and white forms more life.
