GREENERY AND THE DELFT ELEPHANT

This was done in the style developed by Patricia Henderson of Sun Dog Studio in Ontario.  This method is  called fun fantasy painting and is explained on her web site in a demonstration  Her website is www.patriciahenderson.net/artist.html).  This painting is 9" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  This was painted for the May project  of Watercolor Workshop which was to paint something with "greens!"
