Elephant Walking into the Sunset

For Sale - Please ask for Details

This image has appeared on various wildlife magazines. It was too good not to paint in watercolours. I will paint elephants until my dying day. Again, it is about the shadows and generally an elephant can be broken down into 3 basic tonal groups. The simpler the breakdown, the slicker the painting. The colours were definitely exaggerated, but an elephant would look good in anything provided that the colour grouping is harmonious.
