Super Elephant Stage Eleven

This painting is all about the pink elephant in the sky for me, but it needed something to anchor it, so the tree was added. Again I used acrylic. After years of being very traditional in my approach to transparent watercolor it is very liberating to incorporate some acrylic into a painting like this, allowing me to make significant changes late in the process. The finished painting is on exhibit in Car Culture at La Galeria Gitana from September 11 - October 16, 2010.

Super Elephant Stage Ten

As the painting developed I realized I needed to go back into the sky. I decided to do so with acrylic rather than watercolor. I think it is working.
