Painting #15

Wow, already half way through the challenge. Feels good to be doing this.

I decided to try a closeup of an elephant. Another favourite animal. I am not very happy with the result. It was an attempt at wet in wet and I lost control. To me it looks like a big messy blob. But in the spirit of the challenge I am still posting it. The whole idea of this challenge for me is to experiment and try different things. Not everything will work out but I will share it anyway, to show that I am working at it. :)

  1. I wouldn't have guessed elephant, but after reading your post I can see it. This caught my eye because it reminds me of some of my favorite abstracts by O'Keeffe. Some interesting things going on there :)I bet it wouldn't take much to develop it further.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment Sheila, I appreciate it. Yes it does look rather abstract. I might have another go at it at a later date.
