Painting Exam Room #2 -Pink Elephant

This is Exam Room 2. The doorway trim is painted a high gloss purple and it has a lion of Judah mezuzah on the lower right hand side. The carefully written scroll of Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21 is curled inside. A reminder that all we see and do are sacred.

I really enjoyed painting this pink elephant with the bird hitching a ride upon her back. Many shades of color were made from my tube of magenta just by adding water to the acrylic paint. The White wall has an egg shell finish and is rough, making it easy to get variations in color.

Purple cone flowers were my choice for this room, a complement to the color purple around the inside and outside of the door frame. Even the bee has purple stripes.

The opposite wall also has the same flower. Nice and big, towering above the trash can and exam table. Here you can see some of the brush work I did. I used my very favorite scruffy chip brush to make the brush work stand out on the elephant and sky.
