#InkTober day 25 ~ Zoo Elephants

9x12 watercolor with walnut ink on Canson 140 lb cold press paper; other colors used were raw umber and Payne's grey.  Sketch done with Staedtler 0.3 pigment liner pen in black.  Today is the 25th day of  #InkTober (October), so only 6 days left.  This limited palette I think captured the elephant hide hues well and walnut ink provided the dusty clouds.
