Amber Elephant

16"x12"
Its tough to come up with names for them now; I have painted so many!This one is in muted tones- sepia, gold and raw umber mainly.Another study before I started on a bigger commission.It was good to take a break from the usual color scheme and try something new. I refrained from using blue, turquoise and purple in this one.

  2. A very rewarding place to be in. Maybe time for numbers after the names liked best?

    1. I tried numbers once, Tony.I didn't like them.
      I want to be able to remember my artworks by name, numbers make them all look alike :) I will have to create a database of names, I guess!

  3. Amber is a good name for her. She's quite demure. You just stare into her eyes and she tells you her name.

    1. The client did not want any turquoise or blue..that is why I tried this combination without using my favorite blues :)
