Indian Elephant painting

A new painting! It’s acrylic on paper for a change. I enjoy painting on paper now and again, it feels so much more relaxed than canvas. Painting on canvas, I sometimes feel that  the painting has to turn out really well and put more pressure on myself. Obviously, in the end no painting is ever perfect anyway.

My parents have always had a painting of an Indian elephant hanging in their home and it is probably my favourite painting of theirs. My elephant painting is much brighter and more colourful than theirs but I think it also has that old-worldy feel of colonialism and places far away!

It will be up for sale in my shop soon.
