Just started this elephant family painting - makes a nice change from all the fur I have been doing lately:)
its 16 x 12in oil on canvas as per usual :)
Just a few hours put in to this so far, just at the very basic blocking in stage
There is another earlier pic on my site (http://www.onlineartdemos.co.uk/pages/easel.htm)

Beautiful start, how come your "just basic blocking in stage" could already be a great painting????:wink2: I love the dark shadowing behind the ears and under the trunks....will be back

This will be another great painting--I know it already! I really like your composition choice for this one and that strong light.

I can only agree with all above, great start! Beautiful composition!

Yep... another scorcher. Wow!! I'd be happy just to be able to do what you call your "first block". I will be watching this with admiration!!

love Ele's! They are so loving, and caring of their own kind.
Look forward to seeing this one progress Jason, it's superb already!

Glad you all like it so far - I love painting ele's because the paint is so opaque the painting develops real fast :)

Just putting in some lines on the front elephant just so I can see where they go - they look strange now as there are no highlights :)

I think the wrinkles are looking fantastic.:D

Those wrinkles with all their little lines, light and shade, wow, you are doing a fabulous job.

here is the latest update, I still have more to do to make the lines more subtle in areas and also some glazes here and there + thick paint on some grass areas.

Wow, stunning painting, the details on the elephants are just amazing.
03-28-2012, 06:52 PM
Wow, indeed. You really are very talented - amazing work!
