WDE 3 Nov. Late Circus Elephant


Sorry to be late!
8.25x5.25 mixed media collage on old discarded book page that was first gessoed. This elephant was sketched using Micron 01 pen and was painted using black and white acrylics. His decorative red hat and cape are collage paper and harlequin pattern is collage. To the left and back are figure sketches for an audience. Lots of fun. Total time: 1 hour. This one will be my first work inside the old book that will become a new journal. It was published in 1959.
C&C welcome

Great elephant! And I like your idea of recycling the book for paintings.

Thanks everyone!
I've now put a double page mixed media portrait of Harry (123harry) in it as he and I are partners in the Portrait forum annual share project.
