Elephants Work in Progress 02

Hello All, 

Here's an update to my Elephants. I haven't gotten a whole lot done but the skin has lots of details and is somewhat boring to do, LOL. 

This time I scanned it rather than photograph it from my iPhone so the colors are much more truer.

Title: BFF's
Size: 16" x 24"
Medium: Colored Pencil on Suede Mat Board

If you have any comments or questions, don't hesitate to speak up.  Don't forget to Keep Scribbling!  Cheers, Gemma, CPSA, AFC

It's Been A Long Time! Elephants Work in Progress 01

Hello All,

It's been along long time since I have been able to do any artwork.

I am now back at it and hope to stay motivated to get some work done, it does feel good to be back at the drawing table.

I took this photo of a couple of elephants at a sanctuary where I am a docent.  The name of the sanctuary is Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).  These two elephants are Maggie and Mara.  I'm thinking of titling this piece "BFF's" because they are always together.  This piece is being done on light tan Suede Mat Board, it's done with 100% colored pencils and the size is 16" x 24".

Here is the work in progress, it's the upper left corner of the piece.

I had started this piece before and thought it might be interesting to do it on smooth white paper.  I just wasn't happy with the way it was going so I decided to try it, this time, on the Suede Mat Board and I am liking it much better, so far.

Feel free to leave any questions or comments if you want. Good to be back!   Don't forget to keep Scribbling!  Gemma
