Not just any old Bamboo

All Day Dining
Painting size 15" x 11"


In 2009 Adelaide Zoo acquired on loan from China for ten years, two Giant Pandas. Funi and Wang Wang have huge appetites and each consume about 20-30kgs of bamboo everyday. There is even a donation program you can join if you have the right species of bamboo growing and you would like to help the Zoo manage this huge requirement. I really enjoyed painting my Panda as they look so adorable. Whilst I did the background I wanted to make sure I kept the face area really clean so I used packing tape to mask it out otherwise I could see half a bottle of masking fluid being needed.

  7. Hello Lorraine:) Oh how adorable! You did such a good thing on the face. The expression is so lovely. I think it is wonderful that the lower part of the painting is lighter than the rest.. Beautifully done!
