I made an elephant today.  I started with just adding color with InkTense blocks. Used my water brush a little and then just kept adding color and no additional water.  I've been thinking of elephants lately. I've another started.  Its such a fun image to play with.

This elephant came out of that background I did earlier in the week due to a suggestion by my friend April Cole.

Linking to Sunday Sketches and Art Everyday Month

  6. Don't know what InkTense blocks are but sure love your elephants. The colors in the second one is so rich. It's beautiful.

    1. Thanks Myriam, the second elephant was made with those new Florescent colors sold by Golden. They are very transparent and fun to work with.
