Elephants for auction






Here are watercolours which I'd promised to do for a charity auction: elephant research I don't know that I'm totally happy with one of the more naturalistic of the watercolours but Its's made a pleasant change to work with real paint again after all my digital work of late. If anyone has seen my earlier posts you might recognize that a couple of the watercolours are based on a digital elephant I did last month. I found it really useful to go back into my original psd document and switch off layers to plan out my painting. I didn't try to recreate the digital with watercolour (that would just get frustrating) but it was great to have something to aim for.

They're all looking good to me. I'm not sure I'd have an elephants behind to look at my wall but it's still a good job.

I think they'd definitely sell them all.

The water colours look good. Do you ever work in oil or acrylic?
