Before & After Painted Rocks: Adorned Elephants



The rock shapes I chose for these adorned, painted elephants were:
  • Round, roly-poly stone (left)
  • Loaf shape (center)
  • Triangular (right) 

My first step was to paint the elephants without any colorful garments. To help with the proportions and shading I referred to Lin Wellford's book - Painting Zoo Animals on Rocks.

I then chose a different head covering and blanket design for each elephant.

Rocks are enlivened by paint to become adorned, decorated elephants.
