''Splendor"_ The Elephant

13.5x19
Thank you all who took time to comment on my last post.I had to take a short break but could not resist anymore; painted for 2-3 hours last night :) Feeling a bit tired but happy a the results at the same time.
This elephant is bigger than my usual size ...I stretched the 300gsm Arches paper for this size.Mostly I use paper blocks as they are low fuss and easy to use.But Arches blocks are too expensive! 
I worked this one very wet, with drips and spatters- in a completely unplanned fashion....its thrilling to see something emerge out of madness :)
