Although it may not look like much has been accomplished on my elephant, let me assure you that it has taken hours and hours to put the detail in his long trunk - 24" long, and every inch needing to show the texture of his skin as you see above. Ears and eyes are just about done, the head is half done, and then I have to tackle the skin of the legs and chest. In spite of the tediousness of all this detail, I still really like this painting, and my husband says he "loves" it. That is a very high compliment from him!!! None of the above pictures have the color altered in Photoshop, so I hope your monitor shows how beautiful the colors are in this painting. Next time I post him, I hope to have him either completed or very close to completion.
