ELEPHANTS IN PENCIL

This is my latest drawing that I have completed, titled 'Walking in'. It is from a reference photo that I took in the Serengeti on my last visit to Tanzania. These elephants were walking down to a waterhole where they drank, frolicked and generally fooled around having a lot of fun in the water after being out in the warm sun for most of the day. I used Arches watercolour paper using the short side at 22 inches to get the panorama view. On top of using my normal 2B and 3B pencils, I used some ground graphite stick rubbed gently with a tissue to get the soft effect of the dust. This was a great piece to show perspective using tone.
