Searching_ Elephant in Acrylics

12x9
Finally I managed to get myself started on acrylics this morning.It was a fun two hour session;I painted as hubby and son slept and the house was still quiet ( it can be quite tough to paint during holidays with both of them home!) I am happy with my first effort as I wanted to explore texture and it came out well.
I might go and buy a bigger canvas today!

  3. Arti, have you ever done a commission in this loose way? It really is powerful. This close up of an eye and wrinkles is amazing.

    I think I'm running out of words to describe your work - amazing, awe-inspiring, beautiful, stunning, wonderful, lovely, incredible. I hope you don't mind that I repeat the same words so often.

    1. Julie, first of all, a big thank you for this wonderful comment.I am truly happy to read this! Your words are like music to my ears..:)
      As for the commissions,they demand precision to achieve likeness so I stick to realistic style with them; at least so far I have....This looseness is something I have wanted to explore for a long time.and I am loving it!

    2. Artie, I hope someone comes along and tells you they want to commission this loose style. It's enchanting.

      Ha! Another word for you.

  4. I so love what you've done here, Arti. So cool to not paint abstract art and yet have a realistic piece that looks abstract at first glance. Gorgeous up close of the elephant's skin.
