This was my first painting of an animal, done in 2014 before I had thought of doing an A-Z series. Of course, it is a seaside favourite. This painting might also reflect some of the sadness of a donkey. I wanted all of the series of animal paintings to show the paint, to be painterly. This first one particularly does that. A1 in size - 59.4 x 84.1cm, acrylic paint on canvas.
