Elephant Art

Painting is a great way to release stress and make a space completely your own. Even if you do not consider yourself an "artist," the process of creating something can be so therapeutic.
Here is the final work. I worked on this one evening after dealing with some stress. The process completely changed my weekend.
I pre-sketched my elephant onto the canvas and then started on the background first.
I then started working on the ears and head.
I worked my way down to the trunk.
I chose a bright brilliant color for the bottom. I am not sure why I chose the red instead of the typical browns or greens, but I do think that was the perfect choice.
I finished off with the all of the details and hung it on my naked bathroom wall.

    @Carole Thanks. I do a lot of art work but never put it on a blog. Thanks for the compliment. Maybe I will do this more often!
