With the larger animals painted, I began working on the remaining background elements for this illustration. The clouds were too saturated for my liking, so I toned them down with some pale creams and lavenders. I then added detail to the rocks in the background, and those in the foreground by the wolf, ferret and toad. Once those were in place, I began working on the desert yellowhead, the plant that appears in the front of the painting. Last but not least, I painted several honeybees in the foreground.
…and we’re finally DONE!
