The Legend of the Blue Elephant Charge

This is a watercolor of a large elephant charging straight at you. I tried to capture the power of such a large animal by using the perspective of the elephant coming out of a blurred background. Contrasting the colors of the landscape with the blue of the elephant
attempted to make the elephant jump off the page at the viewer. Outlined in white the elephant has a ghostly or spiritual feel.
