White donkey with yellow saddle rug is an original painting by Dorset artist Jill Mirza.
Donkeys are the main mode of transport on the Greek island of Hydra and it is common to encounter them standing patiently in the shade of a tree by the side of the path. Because this donkey is white it makes a contrast with the foliage in the background and the brilliant blue of the sea. The yellow saddle rug adds a richness to the colour of the painting. The angle from which the donkey is viewed leads the eye into the picture as does the rope indicated in the foreground which is tethering the donkey, probably by a front leg which is off the picture. The colours used to indicate shade on the body of the animal pick up those used in the earth and path to unify the image.
