Elegant Elephants

This is my latest painting and also my first painting in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge on Leslie Saeta's web site.

It was also the subject of our lesson tonight at the Intermediate Watercolor Class at Riverside Arts Center in  Wapakoneta, Ohio.  This is the second painting of the same subject since I always do one ahead of time and then one with the class.

This painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Nice painting Barb.

I love elephants, especially the babies. I wanted to do an elephant for the Twinchie challenge this week, unfortunately my drawing attempts always look like blobs. Lovely painting.

Christiane Kingsley said...

Very nice painting, Barb. I find that elephants are such noble creatures.
Congratulations on participating in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I was very tempted, but finally chickened out.

Thanks, Susan!

J.L. Johnson - Thank you! What is the Twinchie challenge? I am not familiar with that term.

Christiane - I also feel that they are very noble creatures. I actually have a collection of elephants - about 300 actually - which I love. It started with 2 small black ones I inherited from my mother which she brought back from Burma as a child.
