The Red Elephant has been completed! It has been a long process as it was a side project between commissioned work. Months later with small work time frames this beautiful and wise creature has been rendered.
With all projects we learn as we go. I had a few personal lessons; the importance of applying many many layers of gesso when stretching your own canvas with raw canvas, at what size is it appropriate to use a brace for the wooden frame to stretched canvas across, and when it is appropriate to apply texture.
