Eliza the Elephant was a commission from July 2018, she was a perfect 50th birthday present.
Painted in Liquitex’ hard body acrylics on a 16″x20″ canvas.
This piece was so exciting to paint! I commonly paint cats and dogs as they are domestic animals, however this incredible animal was refreshing to paint.
For paintings like this I tend to find a suitable image then experiment on photoshop till I create something I like.
