Elephant WDE 10-07-06

Wet Canvas holds weekly an All Media Weekend Drawing Event (WDE) which lasts a week. One has 30 minutes to choose a photo, then two hours to work on the painting. One must stop at the end of two hours and post a photo of the work accomplished. I did the sketch and this painting, which was very fast for me, in two hours 10 minutes. It is approximately 12" x 10" (on a 1/4 sheet Fabriano hot press paper), painted with watercolor. My goal was to paint loose and quickly. Not to be so concerned with outlines or detail.
