The cheetah is more or less finished. I might glaze it slightly later on, perhaps put some motion lines in to emphasise the swerving motion.

The tiger has had its first coat. A bit more work is required.

The clouded leopards require a little more work to make their bodies more rounded.

I may light the group with three quater light from the right in order to increase the massivity of the elephant.

I039;m thinking of putting in a little bird flying between cheetah and tiger and in the same direction. There is almost a flock of these, not fully painted in and not highly visible in the pictures so far, flying out of the orchard to soar above Lincoln Court (by the castle). They serve to provide another rhythm to run through the painting. This rhythm is supposed to be more or less independent to the rest of the composition.
