tonight's has to be one of my personal favorite paintings... partly because of the subject matter & partly because it looks more like my style... broader, sketchier brush strokes. and it's the largest painting i've done for this project, which is much more comfortable for me.
if you weren't aware of this already, my last year in college was spent researching elephants- mostly their physical & behavioral characteristics. they're interesting beasts. this painting, my friends, is of an African elephant, which i believe are much more attractive than the Asian species. (i like the dip in their backs!) when i was doing an outreach in S.Africa, i was fortunate enough to go on a safari & that's where this elephant's photo was taken.
