Elephant in Purple

9"x12"
Loving my new Saunders Waterford CP block-- first page done.I wish I had taken work in progress pictures ! I started with a loose, mingling wash, followed by some detail in the trunk and around tusk.Then I let it sit for a couple of hours.Finally some dry brush detail was added ,so were the shadows.I am quite happy with this one.

  1. Wow! This is absolutely gorgeous! The purples and mauves work so well in this painting instead of the usual gray that I think of when I envision an elephant. I found your work several months ago and just love seeing your animals. Thanks for sharing!
