So I spent a couple hours painting this elephant today. Quickly laid in color. Not taking too much time. Thinking about my color, mixing it on my pallet, then placing it on the paper. No need to go over and create layers and layers of paint. It feels fresh and extremely loose. I feel the rhythm of their strut, feel the warmth of Africa, and enjoy the swing of their tails. "Tails". Done.
It is just how I imagined it to be.
This feels like the last page in a picture book. I think I'll write its story next.
