I painted this sweet little family of three elephants on Arches hot press watercolor paper. I used a combination on Payne’s gray, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre and ultramarine blue to achieve the varying shades of warm and cool gray tones. This print will be available in January in my Etsy shop.

I’m excited to introduce my latest collection of nursery prints! This set of fine art prints includes a baby hippo, elephant and giraffe. Each little animal was hand painted using Holbein Watercolors (my favorite paint!). Prints of this collection are available in my etsy shop. The aqua color can be customized to coordinate with your decor.
I am super excited about these two collections of nursery print sets! Due to popular demand, I’ve added new baby animals to each collection of woodland and safari themed sets. Follow me on instagram for a peek into my latest paintings before they make it to my etsy shop!
I love painting elephants in watercolor. They are beautiful soulful creatures and watercolor captures their essence quite well. I painted this watercolor elephant mom and baby on Arches hot pressed paper.
This print is available in various sizes in my etsy shop. It’s been popular among new moms and baby shower gifts. While the blush pink and gray is popular among parents with newborn baby girls, I have another version with gender neutral tones.
Here are a few more of my watercolor elephant families that coordinate well with this collection.
