Elegante Elephante

Rick Osborn
I love animals, especially wild ones. This original painting is done in acrylic, mostly using a palette knife. I've included a plethora of colors along with a good bit of regal gold to reflect the elegance of the grand elephant. It is done on a dark purple and umber background to contrast the glowing nature of this majestic creature. This original painting was 40x30 inches and done on a gallery-wrapped canvas. Many African cultures revere the African Elephant as a symbol of strength and power. It is also praised for its size, longevity, stamina, mental faculties, cooperative spirit, and loyalty. South Africa uses elephant tusks in its coat of arms to represent wisdom, strength, moderation, and eternity.
Try it!
