“Elephants on Patrol” (Watercolor on paper 45″x20″).
Finally finished this Triptych……I wasn’t happy with the color harmony before, now it works a little better! I chose a double split complementary palette of Yellow/Orange against Blue and Blue/Green with Red/Violet and Violet. I use the Johannes Itten’s color star (as modified by Jane E Jones). The bull elephant is too dark in this picture? I think I still need to tweak!
The design is X-ray effect (where you can see the clouds and trees trunks through the elephants) with dominant oblique direction.
