Ellie the Elegant Elephant

Today is the day for the letter e in the A to Z Blog Challenge

For today’s offering I have a painting of Ellie the Elegant Elephant

Ellie says, “Trunks up, ladies, when you drink your tea.”  I’m sure she would lift her pinkie if she could, but it’s all kind of fused together.

I just got a Wacom tablet this weekend and am trying to get used to using it.  Here’s my attempt to draw/paint Ellie on it using Sketchbook Pro.  I found what looks like a good tutorial.  I couldn’t even figure out how to change the shape of the “canvas,”although you can’t really tell here, there’s a bunch of white space on the right.

I think it will be fun to use, once I figure it out.  And it’s good for my brain, I think.

And that’s it for today–thanks for stopping by.

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.

    • Thank you–I was looking at your blog today. I love the theme of dreams. If dreaming was a profession, I’d be there! But in the meantime, I’ll see what you come up with for dreams from A to Z.
      I didn’t have a theme–just doing a to z seemed like enough for me. But I’m loving some of the themes, like yours. Maybe next time…
