African Bull Elephant – Watercolor

Click on image to zoom

I had this beautiful frame and needed a painting to put in it, and elephants sell so fast I thought the texture would be perfect for it. Sorry for the poor photo, but I had it framed before I could get the picture. The watercolor image is a  4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, the frame outside edge is 11″ square.

With the blowing dirt and dust around his trunk, and by using blues, greens, golds and other colors to the skin, I hoped to bring a little life to such a small painting.

Price: Original watercolor, framed $125.00 plus shipping

  3. Beautiful. Two paintings of elephants won awards in this year’s Watercolor Society of Indiana Show. One was very special. It was Kalina, the baby elephant at the Indianapolis Zoo. Kalina was looking into water and flicking her trunk. The painting was of the reflection rather than looking right at the face. Very cool!
