E is for Elsa is one in my series of wildlife artworks. I hand built the wood substrate from birch and pine. An oil on wood, I used loose red and white stripes for the background. Main subject, a retired circus elephant, is painted in profile with thin washes of blues and greys. The bottom of the elephant slightly drips into the background.
