Je pense que le message pris en note sur son oreille aura été bien compris !!! sourire...
J'aime ce charmant troupeau d'éléphants... Tu as beaucoup de génie ma chère Ces.
J'aime le mouvement de chacun d'eux. Une bien belle et grande famille.
Gros bisous à toi.

You leave me without breath. My goodness, Ces, this is stunning! All the highlights and shadow, the undulating depth of greys. Amazing and just as beautiful as a live herd. I think they are all queueing up for a Ces art exhibition. Strike that. They are stampeding to a Ces art exhibition! Tsup!

Ces, I'm loving these animal pieces, and this elephant herd is amazing. And I adore seeing the step-by-step...did you just add elephants on a whim or was there a master plan from the start?

Ces said...

Thank you Emily. Great to hear from you.

Ces said...

Hehehe. Thank you Karen.

Ces said...

You are welcome and thank you. I can't remember how I got there but it had something to do with my search for Pepe and Pilar. :)

Ces said...

Thank you Sarah. This one had a sort of master plan as I based it on a couple of photographs. I moved the elephants around and I also changed some of their poses. I also added more baby babies. The other elephants in this series were most out of whim and to correct mistakes when I lose track of the leg positions. I add an elephant to cover mistakes. Ssshh...that's a scret. :)

Correction: secret. :)
