Ever since we checked out Have you ever seen a Smack of Jellyfish from the library, I've been wanting to paint more animal silhouettes. That book is full of beautiful animal silhouette illustrations. awesome!
I didn't have any stencils for these like with my other Stenciled Watercolor Projects, but I found a way to make it work. I used the same pencil transfer technique that I used in my Watercolor Portraits to trace the outlines of the elephants and bird. Then I just painted in the lines. It worked quite well!
I'll have to do more of these. The Mom and Baby elephant painting sold within a few days of listing it in my Etsy Shop! It now has a happy home in Virginia.
