The elephant watercolour painting

A watercolour painting of a magnificent African elephant making its way towards you.

Emerging from the greenery behind, this beauty locks your gaze. His wisdom and never-forgetting presence show whilst he playfully hugs one of his precious tusks with his huge trunk. The experience of this incredible creature is hinted at through its myriad of wrinkles and shear size.

The more you look, the more you see the rainbow of colours making up the elephant’s thick armoured skin, in an artistic interpretation.

The African Savanna Elephant live in 23 countries with the largest populations in Southern and Eastern African countries, including Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Namibia, Zambia, and South Africa.

This piece of artwork would look wonderful in a golden frame bringing out the golden colouring hidden in the elephant. If natural is more to your taste, a wooden frame would also work beautifully emphasizing the organic and wild nature of this magnificent animal. An easy size to frame to suit your taste and décor.

Painting details

The watercolour is hand painted on a beautifully thick watercolour paper, giving a lovely texture and depth to the painting.

Size: A4

Original and prints available.
