Mommy Mayhem: Elephant and Doll (Diptych)

Rachael Grad

My abstracted elephant and toy paintings are based on loose, gestural sketches of the same stuffed elephant and doll in different positions. I have painted and sketched these particular toys and stuffed animals from life on many occasions so am familiar with their shapes and forms. I initially paint the forms of the toys, then push the image further into abstraction. In the painting process. I work to alter the forms, light, colour saturation, and depth of space in the paintings.
