Recent Pencil Drawing: Mare and Foal Zebra Art

This pencil drawing is the next step in my new series of wildlife work. The adorable zebra foal caught my eye at the wildlife preserve, and as striped critters make such great drawings I found myself throughly inspired!

You can purchase these signed and numbered Zebra Art Prints on this site, or on my other site If you would like to purchase products with this zebra art, please see my customizable zebra art zazzle items or myzebra 

Wildlife Pencil Drawing: White Swan on Water
