This is the first night I started it. Below is the reference photo.
Above I added the second lion then added some color. Below I used a glaze for the first time! A glaze is just that, a thin coat of paint. I wanted the purple in the background for the elephant.
Last night I started with the above and I worked on the lions and started adding purple to the elephant. My teacher tells me the elephant looks like he is removed from the picture. When I put the "dust" on the picture I think that will cure the problem. There is still much to do but I KNOW what to do so it won't take as long.
