Lovely Elephants was a personal project painted in 2014. My favourite animal is an elephant, favourite colour is purple and I wanted to display the innocence of love. It was my first ever painting to be sold at a gallery and holds huge significance in my artistic career. These two elephants gave birth to my artistic style. I didn’t intend for it to happen, they turned out perfect and I wanted to continue to show the beauty of a captured moment. To blur out the background in an abstract manner to force focus on the emotion.
Below is a time-lapse video I created to show how I made this piece!
