Really nice, Bert.  Love the blue-green limited color palatte you used.  What colors are they?

Elephant is so well drawn.

 :thankyou: Sorry mea I wasn't trying to ignore your question. I am at this stage a wild painter and don't always keep track of what I used for colours. Good lesson for me to start doing that . I hope to get more into a Routine once I start painting more regularly .I  know I mixed some blue with leave green and light emerald green .

thanks everyone else for the compliments . I really love this painting and like Denis said the atmosphere makes me just want to sit there and watch this elephant make it way down this road towards me .
