watercolor (11" x 25")
Well, as Kelley says...here's the big reveal...time for champagne and peanuts!
Who knew animal butts could be so much fun!

For those that are interested, to get to the final stage I removed the masking fluid revealing the protected whites. I soften some edges of these protected white shapes and grayed out some (especially those in the elephants that are further away). I popped in more color into the elephants in the foreground. I weighted down the elephants in the rear (not their rears...). I cropped the left hand side about 4.5 inches, so that your eye stays in the painting more. And then I signed it!
