Zippy the sloth.

It’s hard to believe that at the grand old age of thirty something I haven’t really spent much time drawing or painting animals. Up until today I hadn’t drawn a sloth let alone painted one. I wanted to keep my colourful style so the painting is stylized rather than a photographic reproduction, hence the blue and green tree for starters. I tend to paint things in a long drawn out way that can see me doing the same painting for weeks, I wanted Zippy to be different, simple, colourful, cute, the results all came together after about 2hrs.
