The Gentle Giant_ Elephant Portrait

21"x14" Arches NOT Paper
Going big again, painted on a half sheet of Arches.The composition was powerful so I thought that the impact would be greater in a larger size.I am more or less happy with this one, though the palette was not planned and I floundered a bit ...but all is well that ends well! 
I am loving painting elephants:)
