elephant challenge update

I've been rocking out the elephants!  I don't think I've ever met a challenge so head on before, with this much motivation and enthusiasm.  I wake up ready to paint, and as soon as the heater gets the studio warm-ish and the body is willing to move from a hard nights sleep, I skip off to paint the days little dude!

this was yesterdays guy;

he's so proud and sure of himself,
trying to look intimidating.
"Funny Ears"

he is made from washi tape, oil pastels, charcoal, and acrylics.  I scribbled and played with the mediums before getting down to work with the little guy.  I knew I wanted this to be a fun one, so I played first.  after I worked the baby, I painted white over all the scribbles in short strokes, mixing the colored pastels in with the white for a fun, loose painting.

and todays work came out pretty well, better than I had imagined it would,

"Sarah Remembers"

she is made with book text, charcoal, and acrylics.  I found the text and felt it would go nicely with this painting, and i used the wording to help title her.

I started a second one today, but it's going to wait to be finished until tomorrow.  

until later,
