Little Nellie

Little Nellie

Smashing piece Thea. This little one seems to be hopping and skipping in delight.

Just for your three year old! Thank you very much Kal.

Thank You Thea.

I've yet to show it to my 5 year old grand-daughter - I expect it might go down well with her too.

Who couldn't love this Thea, it's great!

Aw - Little Nell, who can resist a baby elephant and this one is gorgeous !

How gorgeous is Nellie! Lovely Thea!

This is so well done Thea

Happy splatter Elephant, love it.

Oh this is wonderful Thea! He's having such a great time, isn't he, looks as if he's blowing the paint with his trunk and flicking the colour with his tail. Love it!

Thank you very much Christine, Debs, Sarah, Glennis & Fiona for such lovely comments. I know it's a bit cutesy, but I just couldn't resist the way the baby elephant was trotting along so joyfully with his floppy trunk and jolly tail.

A very cute, wet in wet, splashing Nellie, trundling along and looking very happy.

Sooooooooo lovely

This is brilliant, Thea! You've captured the energy and playfulness of a baby calf to perfection. The merging of the warm and cool washes in all the right places is superb and really captures the shape of this delightful little girl.

Just been looking at your pictures Thea and they are all so good, so alive. This one made me laugh out loud, he comes alive on the paper

Hang on Studio Wall

My first elephant! Mostly painted with some added spatter to represent grass, etc. Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico 300lbs.

I am a watercolourist first and foremost as I love the qualities of the medium, its riskiness and unpredictability. I started painting about 8 years ago and it has now become an integral part of my life. Hopefully, I will continue to paint into my dotage as I am given to understand that you can…
