Animal paintings

Elephant This weekend, i decided to do some longer acrylic paintings on canvas. I just checked out a book on the artist Robert Bateman, and was inspired to do some painting of animals in the wild.  I have some favorite animals. Elephants. Wolves. Lions. Tigers, oh my.  No, but really.

I pulled out the sketches I did a few weeks ago while at the Natural History Museum, and used them as references.  Elephants are so interesting to me. They are all wrinkly and alien looking, with their big ears and long noses.

Each painting is 9×12, on unstretched canvas.  I might stretch them, or just put them into frames.
