A Special Relationship
18" x 18.5" - acrylic on canvas paper - sold
I was recently given a photo depicting a young woman who works at an elephant sanctuary in Asia and it provided the source for this painting, #26 in the 30 in 30 day challenge. As the hat was such a dominant shape in the photo I had to make it interesting in the painting, and did so by breaking it down into smaller abstract shapes, echoed in the elephant's trunk. I am very happy with how the painting turned out, combining both abstract qualities, and more realistic ones - except for the palette of course!
