This Harry Abbeu painting captured my eye in an instant. Yeah, you might think its a simple painting of an elephant but it’s not at all. Abbeu depicts the absolute beauty of this large mammal. Even though it’s a simple painting of an elephant, it caught my eye by the colors Abbeu picked. The red automatically causes you to be interested in the painting. The red color helps Abbeu show the importance of the elephant and its magnitude. I recently went on a trip to Africa and was lucky enough to see such a beautiful animal. One of the main reasons why I was so interested in this painting was because of the way Harry Abbeu portrays the elephant. He does such a great job of making it look realistic that it made me relive the moments I had with the elephants in Africa.
