Mommy Mayhem: Tired Toy Elephant

Rachael Grad

This abstract painting of a tired toy elephant has orange, blue, green, yellow, black, white, and brown multicolours. My abstracted elephant paintings are based on loose, gestural sketches of the same stuffed toy elephant in different positions. I have painted and sketched this particular stuffed animal from life on many occasions including a 6-month long daily drawing project. I initially paint the forms of the toy elephant, then push the image further into abstraction.
