"Elephant"

Elephants are magnificent animals. With every step I took while painting this elephant I was falling more and more in love with the beautiful web of wrinkles on the skin. I felt as if I was carving them with sunlight. Whoever says that wrinkles aren't beautiful is wrong.

Today it's exactly 1 month after I started this blog. It's been great! I'm really happy I can share my art with you. You are all amazing! Thank you so much for your support! 
And see you tomorrow, as usual :)
