Thank you Janet. It was Ticktock1's photo that had such a crop, I could not resist painting it.

Gosh but that is tiny and yet you have still managed to show the power and strength of the elephant with excellent colour choices and a good crop. Well done.

I am so glad you like it Chammi and Sharon. I am trying to paint more loosely which I think I have done. I do a lot of miniatures so am used to a small space.

Patrick I am so pleased you like it.
Onlineart, I am hoping to do a larger version, but need a bigger paintbrush.

It was Ticktock1's photo that inspired me. I find that a photo can spark off such enthusiasm and excitement that the process of reproducing it goes quickly and almost effortlessly.
