'African Elephant'

I've never been to Africa, but I do live walking distance from the zoo. This is 'Duchess' and she makes a good subject for watercolour. I've concentrated on the shape, and the way the light and shade creates the solid form. I think getting the character of the subject is more important than rendering every wrinkle... I'm sure Duchess would agree.
