View Full Version : WDE 10.9.06 - Another Pink Pachyderm!

10-09-2006, 02:30 PM
Two things I can't resist...a good elephant pic and quinacridone magenta! My college's mascot is a mighty pachyderm, and the colors are crimson and white, so I guess that's why! Anyhow - here's my contribution - at about 5x7 inches, watercolor on Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. Right at 2 hours, I think. I forget to watch the time :lol: .

Great! Love the crop and especially his trunk coming down from the picture plane. Cool. Why don't I think of things like that?

Lovely rendition of this popular fellow.
I especially like the pen work.
Don't you just love those Moleskine sketchbooks? (I do).

I cant see any pink elephants! :eek: Posts no 1-5 are no longer there - for me, in the main forum...but I've just scrolled down the replies...and I can see a BEOOOTIFUL Pink Elephant!

VALRI - How did I miss you in my first reply??? :eek: I don't know - anyhow - thank you, thank you thank you!

Thanks, too - Meimei, Imelda, Steve, Chloe, Jane, SAndy, and Dewi!! It's funny - the pen work came late in this one - I had intended for it to be a traditional watercolor, but I never could get happy with it, so I started playing with the pen and bam - there it was :)

Dee - what is up with your 'puter, girl? All the posts are there for me! Weird! Glad the reply section is working, anyway - thanks for the comment (and your persistence!) :wink2:

Well - couldn't edit to add anything - don't know why, exactly...but Steve - yes, I do love the Moleskine - I'm really starting to enjoy the watercolor sketchbook - it's taken me a while to get into it, but I'm almost through another regular sketchbook, and I guess I felt like I could branch out!

So vital! Love this pink and purple 'phant!!!!!!!!
I do really like your approach Diahn - the penwork and the colour - not to mention the crop!

Must look for these moleskine w/c books - it's tempting me!

Nice work my friend!
