I think the paper has definitely passed the test. Now I need to start concentrating on this painting. I had another go at the head shape and trunk, decided I'm getting obsessed, so started to consider the body of the elephant and the bush. There's still lots to do, I need to work this painting as a whole composition, I want the motion of the elephant as he's walking through the bush to be reflected in the background. The light is very key to making this painting, so I want to work the lovely yellows, oranges and pinks throughout the whole composition.
