Surprise Image in my Painting

Elephant Bird

11"x15" Watercolor on Paper
Every once in a while I am surprised by an unplanned image that appears in my painting.
Can you see it?

My first thought, paint over or wipe out the image.  I know the image sends a message, not part of the painting plan, but I am smitten with the Elephant image that is infatuated with the Bird.

In this painting I use several painting techniques, positive and negative, glazing, and mingling and merging of color.

Tomorrow, I'll be on location in the High Desert of Hesperia painting the Joshua Tree Blooms.
