It probably doesn't look like much change has been made today, but I have put in about 4 more hours on this painting. I am using a "fatter" mix of oil today concentrating on deepening the darks and trying to get the colors just right. I think I am almost there although I haven't even started doing the background yet. I want to get the exact right color for this so that it really looks as if it is stirred up dust from the running elephant. I will let this try for a few days and do some more on the weekend.
