Elephants cooling off

Always find this the fun, nerve wracking part of creating; the starting block in stages.

I’m loving playing with lights and darks on these grand Elephants and placing them in the murky dark ponds of their natural environment.

Still much more work to get over the finish line with this one.

Commission artwork – Geelong Foreshore Melbourne Australia

I’ve been having a lot of fun and challenge working on my next commission painted in oils.

The best part is that I was given creative freedom and after a bit of to and fro with preliminary sketches, I got the composition worked. I have come to realise this is the part I enjoy, the to and fro of getting it right.  I also get satisfaction out of ideas/feedback from the client and enjoy nurturing these relationships throughout the creative process. And I do prefer working on these larger artworks. This will be finished over the next week and I will post it then.
