Painting a day 15

Well am actually ahead but need to work on a few larger pieces as well, I have done some smaller paintings which I will be sending to Vandy Massy's Running with Brushes charity... quite a few artists have got involved now so there is a lovely selection of work to view there on the site.....

Here is my next painting, I have painted this once before for my xmas cards last year and is one of Gary Jone's wonderful photos

I decided to keep it simple with this one just letting the colours mix and blend in the first washes then going in with some deep colour for the final stage so very economical with the brushstrokes on this.

  3. Great painting! Elephants are my favorite animal. In fact, I just sculpted an elephant out of playdough for my three little girls earlier today. (Smiles). They are the cutest animals in the world to me. Just love their long trunks and big floppy ears. I wish I could have one as a pet. You've done a really great job painting him.
