Mosaic Space Elephant

Mosaic Space Elephant - student project

I was having some trouble coming up with something I liked but I kept coming back to animals, elephants in particular.

They're my favorite animals, and I also really like space, so I combined the 2 in the concept and the color palette. I scanned this in .Tiff but the file was too big, so I made a screenshot. Hence the low quality.

I tried to make blooms and worked explicitly wet on wet. I also used a rubber marker for the lines in between, but I think it was a little dried out because it sadly didn't cover as well. I touched up the areas that bled through with white gouache.

I like how it turned out and I'll look into editing this in your other class!
