Water Lily 1

I felt like getting away from the animals and landscapes for a change and decided to do a Water Lily.  Thanks to Kay Davis on the Photos for Artists FB page, for use of her photo for a reference.

Elephant

A friend of mine loves Elephants and as her birthday was coming I thought I would do one for her in pastel.
Hope that she liked it.

A Couple More Pastels

I am still playing around with my pastels, I have been busy and the pastels are an easy medium to work with when you just have bits and pieces of time to play.
I do have an oil on the go also; but it is just in the beginning stages.
I have another pastel done; but cannot post it at the moment as it is a gift for someone, so will post it later.

A big thank you to Andy Goodson for giving me permission to use his photo for reference for the painting of Little Swan Valley.

Art Show And Sale

I attended an art show and sale in a neighbouring town this weekend.  It was a very well organised event with lots of great artists showing their work.  A good experience.
I took a few general photos.

Baby Elephant 2

A customer saw the baby elephant I had done and wondered if I could do one for her; but with the trunk in a little different position.
I got it done and she seemed happy with it when she picked it up.

Here it is:
