Elephant

Elephant by Veronica Marshall

Artist’s Statement

Elephant is an acrylic on canvas, and as a work of art, I experimented with different techniques. The main methods used were a palette knife and rag. I was seeing how the colors and techniques could be used to build up around brushwork.

As a color choice, I was looking for something bright that could be blended with other colors simultaneously, so the natural choice was Indian yellow. The piece started by using a rag and brushwork, then I used a palette knife to shape the paint into what, in my mind, began to look like an elephant.
