Finishing Touches

At this stage, the painting is almost finished.
The grass needs highlights, the cheetah need backlighting, the elephants need to be pushed further into the background and their legs blended into the grasses. And the final detail will be to glaze more reddish orange onto the cheetah. This will pull them further into the foreground and create more distance between them and the elephants. Using liquin the glazing will be subtle but hopefully effective.

Original Oil

Note the bluish glazing on the elephants is similar to the sky color in the upper right of the painting.
