Elephant Designs

I have been working on an elephant project lately. I wanted to try working some more with drawing in pen and ink, which is where I started with my elephant. I have also been working with the F&W inks and trying to master them. The iridescent ones fascinate me and although I struggle with the drying time for acrylics, I keep working with them - bound and determined that I am going to eventually win - not necessarily by making them do what I want them to do, but by finally figuring out how they are best handled. So next, I tried my elephant with the F&W inks, while still working on the black and white pen and ink designs for this little guy. So here is what I got. It was a fun break from the portraits that I love to work on. Those can be somewhat intense, so this is my way of relaxing and loosening up before I go back to what really intrigues me. This may be a few weeks early since it isn't Thanksgiving yet. Hope you enjoy!
