What I'm Working On: Elephants!

Ele_WIP

I love how I keep this box of so many tubes of gouache, yet I find myself using the same 5 or 6 colors from project to project. I can't think of the last time I reached for permanent green deep...

I'm at the final steps in my painting for the NESCBWI Spring Conference poster contest. I'll be adding the finishing touches with pencil on a seperate layer, much like I did in my last blog post. These elephants really need that extra detail. I'll share another sneak peek of the final art - I was really inspired right off the bat with this year's 'theme'. I haven't entered a poster contest in probably 5 years - so that says it all. Happy Elephant painting to all my fellow poster entrants, too!
