Tim, One of the Last and Largest Giant Tuskers
African Elephant Portrait
30" x 22"
Tim, one of the last and largest of Kenya's giant tusker elephants, died last year in March 2020. He was 50 years old and had become beloved of millions worldwide, due to not only his statuesque dimensions and spectacular tusks, but also for his placid nature. The watercolor was done in commemoration, using a sea salt texturing technique and was painted with Daniel Smith watercolors on Lanaquarelle 300 lb cold press, 100% cotton watercolor paper, over a period of around two and a half weeks.
