Two Hour Paint Sketch - Elephant

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm trying to force myself to do mini paintings within 1 hour as an exercise to loosen up my tight style a bit. So far I've not been able to complete a painting within 1 hour. My previous post took 1.5 hours. This one took a good 2 hours. But, even so, it's been a good exercise. It's still forced me to let go of the nit-picky details and focus more on color and form.

I must also point out that I have only painted an elephant once in my life before this one, and that was like 20 years ago, so I figured 2 hours for a subject I never paint isn't too bad.
