I've been pretty busy lately working on a large elephant acrylic painting commission and wanted to give you guys a quick update on my progress.
I have really enjoyed working on this big guy. It is certainly one of the larger paintings that I have done and this has given me so much more opportunity to be adventurous when it comes to my technique. I also found that I am able to get a lot more detail when it comes to larger-scale paintings.
I posted a few clips on my social media of me working on this guy and have uploaded the full video to show quite how large we are talking. Even work on a small part of the elephant's ear has taken me quite a while. Being dry, cracked and crinkly, elephant skin has a very different texture to anything that I am used to painting and I have learnt a lot along the way.
