I painted this sweet little family of three elephants on Arches hot press watercolor paper. I used a combination on Payne’s gray, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre and ultramarine blue to achieve the varying shades of warm and cool gray tones. This print will be available in January in my Etsy shop.
Watercolor Elephant parent and baby

10×13 inch watercolor painting on Arches 140lb hot press paper
I love painting elephants in watercolor. They are beautiful soulful creatures and watercolor captures their essence quite well. I painted this watercolor elephant mom and baby on Arches hot pressed paper.
This print is available in various sizes in my etsy shop. It’s been popular among new moms and baby shower gifts. While the blush pink and gray is popular among parents with newborn baby girls, I have another version with gender neutral tones.
Here are a few more of my watercolor elephant families that coordinate well with this collection.
