Every now and again I decide to do something very different.... This is the result of such an experiment and one which I am really pleased with.
I started with a big canvas and poured on lots of acrylic inks and left it to see how it inspired me. For some reason the canvas just said elephant to me, so I took one of my own photos as reference and started using oil paints to create an elephant. I used palette knives and lots of different colours, adding and taking off paint until I had an elephant that suited me. I then finished off with a bit of silver acrylic paint.
The result is a big colourful canvas that will make a lovely focal point of any room :)
Overall measurements are 51 x 76cm
