Like the elephant, I will never forget my brief South African encounter with this great animal.

In my realistic style of painting I am always trying to avoid getting trapped too early in the finer details by keeping everything loose as long as possible. I build up details slowly using a variety of colours and values which will appear as detail as I work towards the finished piece. Creating the many wrinkles and dark shadows was crucial to balancing this composition the way I wanted it to be.
